Dyche: Another Strong Performance

12 March 2016

Sean Dyche was left purring after another clinical display at Huddersfield made it six straight Championship wins.


The Clarets tamed the Terriers in the first half, through goals from Stephen Ward, Sam Vokes and Ben Mee.


The result extended the Clarets lead at the top of the Championship to seven points, with nine games to play.


Dyche said: “It was a really strong performance today, especially in the first half.


“I feel both teams tried to play on a tough pitch, but we’ve controlled the game in different ways today.


“We controlled it in the first half with our energy and concise play and good set plays, then in the second half we have managed the game out very well, I thought.


“These are all things the group have learned in order to get results.”


Joe Lolley’s strike at 2-0 had looked like changing the half time team talks for both managers, until Mee doubled the advantage again with the last incident of the half.


Dyche added: “We don’t get too disappointed by anything that hits us and the response to their goal was really pleasing.


“But these are tough characters who play the game passionately, in the right way and in control and that was on show again today.


“You expect them to have a reaction because they had nothing to lose. They came at us a bit stronger in the second half, but I felt we handled that well.”


The victory rounds off another magnificent seven days for the Clarets, following the derby win over Blackburn Rovers and the three points picked up at Fulham on Tuesday.


Dyche added: “It’s been another absolutely outstanding week.


“Our mentality and physicality is strong and we think we know what the team are all about tactically and we think we can deliver.


“It’s back to the drawing board now though. The lads will get a little bit of down time and we will work hard again this week and get ready to go again.”
