Dyche Delight As Clarets Roll On

15 September 2015

Sean Dyche felt his in-form side showed both sides of their game to notch up a fourth straight win at home to MK Dons.

Sam Vokes and George Boyd celebrated two superb strikes either side of Carl Baker’s header on the stroke of half time to seal victory.

And the gaffer was purring after the win catapulted the Clarets up to third in the Championship table.

He said: “You want your home to be a fortress and there were goods signs again. To be honest, it should have been over before half time.

“Everyone in the stadium was scratching their heads how it was 1-1.

“It would have been even more comfortable if they’d had a man sent off in the first half, which he should have been for the foul on Andre when he’s through on goal.

“Once we got ahead again and the game ran down, they threw caution to the wind and every credit to them.

“But I am really pleased with the mentality of the players to see that one through and grab another valuable win.”

Dyche, whose decision to switch wingers at half time paid instant dividends as Boyd popped up with a stunning far post volley from Andre Gray’s second assist in as many games, added: “I must mention the two goals because they were sublime finishes and the fans here had a treat with those tonight.

“But I think we’ve shown two sides of what we are about as a group tonight.

“The obvious one is the energy and desire, but there was also some really good football and we created some really good chances.

“We’ve been looking to be more fluid in that department and we were this evening

“Then, in the last 20 minutes we have shown that resilience, mentality, framework and organisation to see the game out in the defensive side.

“Tom (Heaton) will be disappointed to pick one out of the net, but on the other hand he’s made only one more save of any note and we’ve got a good habit of keeping him quiet, and when we don’t he makes good saves, so it’s a good mixture at the minute.”
