Dyche: Build On Midweek!

7 December 2018

Sean Dyche has called for his players to build on Wednesday’s positive performance against Liverpool to get back to winning ways.

The Clarets boss has seen signs of improvement from his squad, in the last two home games against Newcastle United and Liverpool.

And although both ended in defeats, leaving Burnley in the bottom three, the gaffer is confident that another performance at home to Brighton on Saturday can turn the tide.

“We need a team that gives everything and the team are showing clear signs of that,” said Dyche.

“We’ve shown a good mixture in the last two home games of performance, energy, belief from the players and form the crowd belief in the players.

“Now we have to turn that into results and that means adding in the tiny details that count. The mentality is relentless and that’s important.”

“It’s certainly a big game, because, statistically, the (upcoming) away games at Tottenham and Arsenal are more difficult.

“But we can’t just work on our home form to get anything. We have to take care of our performance levels because over time that what gets us results.”

Albion currently sit in mid-table in the Premier league, with 21 points on the board following the midweek home victory over arch-rivals Crystal Palace.

They will. however, be without influential defender Shane Duffy (suspended) and injured striker Glenn Murray for tomorrow’s trip to Turf Moor.

And Dyche, who could again be without Belgian midfielder Steven Defour, is full of praise for the job his opposite number, Chris Hughton, has done at the Amex.

“Brighton have done well. They have a solid format and I’ve a lot of time for Chris and his team and the way they have grown the club,” added Dyche.

“They have spent well and developed players, which is healthy mixture and Chris has done a good job.

“They have some good players who are maturing into Premier League players, and they are willing to work for each other.

“The thing is, from our point of view, we have come across them down the years and beaten them, so we can remind ourselves of that.

“But in the here and now we’ve shown good performances in two of those last three games and if you keep doing that, the margins will come your way; I am absolutely sure of that.”

There is live commentary from tomorrow’s game on Clarets Player HD from 2.45pm.
