Dyche: Patience Is A Virtue

19 March 2016

Sean Dyche believes that patience from supporters can be a virtue as the Clarets look to maintain their position at the Championship summit.

The Clarets go into the two-week international break four points clear after Sam Vokes’ second half header was cancelled out by Dany Batth’s late header for Wolves.

However, following a 15-game unbeaten run that has put his side in pole positon with just eight games remaining, boss Dyche asked for more backing from the fans!

He said: “It was a good point and a close affair in the end against a team who came here with a resilient game plan.

“We had to try and work out different ways of trying to break them down, which we did, and then just got caught at the end with a set piece, which can happen.

“Teams don’t just roll up here and roll out the red carpet and say ‘go on then, you beat us’. They come here to work and get results and we need to make sure we are ready for that.

“The defensive unit was strong again today and the midfield unit worked well. It’s only one or two details in the game, like a few loose passes when we could have maintained the ball better and been more progressive with it.

“But it’s a long season and it’s difficult to be on top of your game all the time.

“I asked for patience from the crowd and it was a strange one today, because I think we can get more from them.

“There were a few question marks over players when a pass goes astray and a little bit of angst sets in.

“That’s strange to me with what’s happening here and how we are doing and that patience is important.

“I mentioned it in the programme before the game and there has to be that patience because it’s support that we need.

“These are a very important eight games for different reasons and we need to bring that positivity into the stadium constantly.

“The team do it, and have for a long time now, and sometimes the crowd have to get involved on behalf of the team and we need that going forward because it’s a great weapon.

“We have had an amazing run of results and we are still looking strong.

“We gave everything to win a game today and it didn’t quite work for us, but it’s another point on the board and we believe in what we are doing.”
