Dyche Hails Brentford Victory

15 January 2016

Sean Dyche declared his first half demolition job on Brentford as the best 45 minutes of his Burnley reign.

The Clarets romped into a three-goal lead by half time thanks to superb goals from Scott Arfield, Joey Barton and George Boyd.

And after a third win on the road in six days, Dyche was delighted at his side’s efforts.

He said: “When you look at the week and our recent results, I’m delighted after that. Especially that first half, which was absolutely excellent.

“It wasn’t just the goals, there were other chances from great counter-attacking, great mix play from shifting the ball quickly and all of the things you want from the team.

“In the second half, they have a right to affect the game and they had to do something, with all due respect to them.

“We didn’t play as well, but by then the damage was done and it could have been more, and probably should have been.

“As a performance it’s up there as the best. I know Burnley fans still speak about the first half at (Nottingham) Forest a couple of year ago when we were three-up.

“But tonight we were effective in so many ways and that’s what I was so pleased about.

“We had so many good chances and arguably took our three toughest. That’s the madness of football, but they were three sublime goals.”

The win takes Burnley’s tally to 18 goals in their last seven games, and 10 in the past week, which has included wins at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup and at MK Dons.

Dyche added: “I am just really pleased to come away with another big three points and another three goals on the road.

“We have an amazing goals tally recently and despite the second half it’s hard to be critical of the players after the second half.

“We’ve had a lot of travelling and put so much into the last week, and before that, but when the next one comes around we have to work hard again.”
