Dyer Hopes For Electric Turf Moor

19 April 2016

Lloyd Dyer is hoping for another ‘electric’ atmosphere at Turf Moor tonight as the Clarets meet top of the table Middlesbrough.

Dyer made his first appearance for Burnley as a substitute in the 2-1 win over Birmingham City at St Andrew’s on Saturday.

And after sampling the tremendous support from the fans since his arrival, the former Watford man is hoping for the same against Aitor Karanka’s men.

He said: “It’s a big game and I’ve played against Middlesbrough a few times. They’re a side with great quality throughout so it’ll be a test.

“But we know what we’ve got in our dressing room so hopefully we can come through.

“I see it as another game. There is no extra pressure on us and we’re all just looking for another three points because it won’t be won or lost tomorrow.

“Since I’ve been here the atmosphere has been electric, especially away from home.

“The fans were unbelievable on Saturday and if they can transfer that at home and get behind us it could be the difference.”

The 33-year-old was promoted with Leicester City in the 2013/14 season when they went up as champions, scoring the goal that clinched the title against Bolton Wanderers.

The Birmingham-born winger spent last season on loan at Birmingham City and he is hoping to make an impact in the final few games, after making his debut against his former employers.

Dyer added: “It was a long time coming and it was great to come on, get my first minute’s on the pitch all season and be back out there.

“I see myself as a different option to the other wingers we’ve got here who all have great quality and hopefully I made an impression when I came on.

“It was strange as it was at St Andrew’s when I last played against Charlton Atheltic so it was nice to go back and get a vital win.”
