Dyche: We'll Aim To Win Every Game

18 March 2016

Sean Dyche insists table-topping Burnley are out to win every game in their quest to seal promotion.

With nine Championship games remaining, the gaffer refuses to put a points target on achieving an immediate return to the top flight.

But he sent out a warning to their promotion rivals by insisting the Clarets are not letting up between now and May 7.

“The simple reality is if you take care of your own business and do it well with performances, roughly speaking you get what you want,” said Dyche.

“I’m certainly not looking to where we can pick points up in upcoming games. Everyone knows I go out to win every game, home or away!

“That’s our intention and I make that clear to the players; we are going to win the game!

“That’s one thing that’s a given, and once we have that mentality, everyone knows it and it’s served us well over time.

“The simple fact remains that if you get your business right this week and the week after, you are like a magnet and everything comes towards you.”

Six straight wins and seven in eight games have shortened the odds on Burnley wining promotion back to the Premier League.

But Dyche insists that Wolves at Turf Moor this weekend remains his only immediate priority.

He added: “We are happy that the superlatives are getting used about the team and the club, because that means you are going well.

“The focus here though does remain on the next game and I don’t just speak to the media about that.

“I mention it all the time to the players. That clarity of thought keeps you grounded and ready for the next challenge; it’s as simple as that.

“We have to make sure we have clear focus on what is directly in front of us and not worrying about all the noise from the outside, so bring it on!”

Wolves arrive at Turf Moor having two of their last 11 games, but with only one defeat in their last four.

“They have been a bit up and down, but Kenny (Jackett) has done a good job over a number of years there and he’s got them back to a stable position,” said Dyche.

“I think everyone would agree they are certainly a big enough club to be in the Championship, if not the Premier League.

“They are trying to earn the right, like everyone else, and I know Kenny won’t just let the season fizzle out for no reason.

“He will be wanting them to play well, so it’s another exciting challenge for us back at Turf Moor.

“We’ve had three of the last four away from here and we’ve three of the next four here, so we are looking forward to that and the fans here can play a really important part with their patience.

“It’s hard to dominate every game and get every performance right, so that patience is required from a fan base and it’s vital hey keep believing in the lads and helping them.”
