Dyche Left Frustrated At Albion Loss

19 August 2017

Sean Dyche admitted he left Turf Moor frustrated after seeing his side dominate West Bromwich Albion, but lose to a late goal.

Hal Robson-Kanu’s 71st minute effort - from Albion’s only shot on target - brought the Clarets crashing back to earth following their opening day victory at Chelsea.

Abd Dyche felt his side created more than enough chances to win a game that got away.

The Burnley boss said: “This game can be frustrating sometimes and it’s a strange disappointment for everyone today because when you don’t play well and get nothing, you feel a bit downtrodden.

“We have performed very well today and got nothing, so it’s a strange feeling.

“I thought the performance was good, especially with the ball. I thought we kept it well in a manner that still opened up chances and we were strong defensively, and it was just one ball whacked in the air that we didn’t deal with as we had all afternoon and a bit of a mix-up.

“That’s the real frustration because we had more than enough chances to get something from the afternoon.”

Dyche, whose side carved out 20 chances in the game, added: “I thought Ben Mee had his shirt pulled by Gareth Barry in the first half, as he got onto a great cross from Robbie, so it’s a tough one today.

“At the end, the fans applauded the team off, and rightly so, because I thought they saw them put in a performance, which we’ll take on.

“We have to keep growing as a team and that’s two good performances in two games now. There was enough there today definitely to get a minimum of a point and we probably deserved more overall.

“There’s no guarantees that performances will get you wins, of course. You’ll still take knocks along the way, as we did today, but the disappointment of today goes away quickly.

“These are good times for this club and this team, and we’ve another good week coming, which we look forward to.”
