Dyche: Make It A Date

1 February 2019

Sean Dyche has called for supporters to roar the Clarets on to a third successive home win this weekend.

Burnley host Southampton at Turf Moor, looking to follow up wins against West Ham United and Fulham either side of the new calendar year.

And the gaffer urged fans to make it a date and help see off the Saints to extend the recent run of unbeaten games to six.

Dyche said: “We are beginning to draw in some of the teams above us and without the decisions that went against us recently we’d be even closer and maybe even drawing one or two more in.

“We control ourselves and the main thing is to keep the consistency going.

“We are in a good place and the fans were brilliant again the other night at Manchester United and we’re going to continually need that.

“They’ve been patient in backing the team and pushing them with a positive demand and we want that to continue.”

Dyche, who can call on deadline day signing Peter Crouch, and who could have wide men Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady available again after injury, added: “We face a side with a relatively new manager.

“He has gained that ‘bounce’ and they are still a very good Premier League side, but we are at Turf Moor where we’ve shown we can deliver.

“At the end of the day we have to look at our own performance because when we do that, whoever we take on, we’ve shown we are a threat. That’s a really healthy place to be.”

Matt Lowton misses out with a broken toe, while Steven Defour remains a doubt for the game, which kicks off at 3pm.

Clarets Player will have live commentary of the game from 2.45pm. Day passes, costing just £1.99, are available HERE.
