Dyche: We're Finding The Right Mix

11 March 2016

Sean Dyche says his side must continue to try and find ‘the right mix’ as they head into the final ten games of the season.

The Clarets are now four points clear at the top of the Championship after their 3-2 victory over Fulham on Tuesday.

And Dyche, who was named Manager of the Month for February, believes the will and desire of his group has shone through in recent weeks and helped to grind out wins.

Reflecting on his award, he said: “I’m pleased having had the award before on behalf of the staff and the players.

“It’s a group effort what we do, it’s my job to take the reins of it but I believe wholeheartedly in what they do so I’m pleased for them and the supporters as well.

“I’ve been really happy with the season and how the players are performing but obviously in the last couple of months we’ve been very strong.”

Dyche added: “There is a strong will and desire which has been seen in the last couple of victories. Certainly, the Bolton and Blackburn games because that was about digging in.

“That was on a day where you’re not on your game, the opposition are and you have to dig in and find a way of winning.

“The Fulham game was slightly different as weren’t so good in the first-half but in the second we were strong again and saw the game out rightly.

“Before those three I thought some of our football has been terrific so it’s about finding that mixture of different ways to win to glue it all together. There’s plenty of that and there’s plenty of belief.

“It’s the right mix so it’s about how far we can take it.”

Huddersfield Town are the opponents on Saturday at the John Smith’s Stadium, and Dyche feels that recent results have served as a poignant reminder that there are no easy games in a fiercely competitive division.

“Everyone is a dangerous opposition, no matter what the circumstances or their position. The last one doesn’t owe you the next one.

“I say it all the time because I mean it and we take every game seriously. The biggest show of that were Bolton as they were having a tough time on and off the pitch and yet against us they were very good.

“We didn’t take them for granted and we certainly won’t take Huddersfield for granted or anyone else for that matter.

“They’re in the division for a reason, it’s a tough division and a tough ask. We make sure we show clarity to our thoughts on what we want to deliver. That's our intention.”
