Dyche: Enjoy The Ride!

29 November 2017

Sean Dyche told Burnley fans to enjoy the ride as the Clarets chalked up a fourth away win of the season at Bournemouth to go sixth in the Premier League.

Dyche’s away-day heroes doubled last season’s tally on the road by making it 14 points form seven games thanks to goals in each half from Chris Wood and Robbie Brady.

Dyche beamed: “It’s a fantastic night and I must mention our fans. Not just because of the result, because of course they enjoyed that, but to bring so many down here on a Wednesday night and get behind the team singing all the way through, was tremendous.

“They are enjoying it at the moment and they should be. Times like this are to be enjoyed.

“My job though is to remain level headed and I’ll never go away from that. I thought the boys delivered a fine performance again off the back of a disappointment, albeit a good performance against Arsenal on Sunday.

“To step on again tonight was a marker and I thought we were excellent, particularly in the first half.

“We were well worthy of going in in front and then we saw the game out.

“In the second half we thought they might throw caution a little bit, but we defended very well and it’s a 95-minute job.

“We scored a fine second goal and the professionalism kicked in to get the job done and I’m so pleased on all counts.”

Wood opened the scoring before half time with his fifth goal in Burnley colours after being recalled to the starting line-up at the expense of Ashley Barnes.

Dyche explained: “It was a tough decision because Ashley has been terrific, but don’t forget Chris was unlucky to be left out too.

“It was my decision because of fatigue, but all the strikers are chomping now.

“Sam came on recently and got a big winner for us at Southampton and Nahki is breathing down their necks and Jon Walters coming back, It’s a healthy area at the moment and that’s important for us.”
