Dyche Has Four-Sight

11 January 2019

Sean Dyche has urged upbeat Clarets’ fans to roar his side on to a fourth straight victory, against Fulham on Saturday.

Burnley host the Cottagers looking for a third successive Premier League victory on the back of wins against West Ham and Huddersfield Town.

And with an FA Cup third round victory over Barnsley last weekend adding to the feel-good factor around Turf Moor, Dyche hopes another three points on the return to league action can help build momentum.

He said: “I think the fans have been brilliant, though all the challenges of the season, and that just reaffirms the connection.

“They feel good and the players feel good and wins make everyone buzz.

There’s been a solid feel in the camp anyway, but that’s what you are in the game for because you can’t beat that wining feeling.

“It’s a marvellous thing to have, especially when you are playing as we have in the last three games with good, solid, effective performances and making lots of chances.

“We’ve doubled our chance count and scoring goals and keeping it tight at the back is a great mix to have.”

Burnley’s welcome return to form has rocketed them out of the bottom three, and victory over Claudio Ranieri’s men would open up a seven-point gap between the two sides.

Dyche added: “I’ve felt we’ve been getting there for a while, but we’ve been playing some top sides and those games have been tighter than you think.

“Individual mistakes have led to games getting away from us, but I knew there would be a time when those individual mistakes would not be made, and then the performance looks much more solid.

“The main thing is the mentality since the blip of the Everton game here, which wasn’t good enough.

“The reaction to that has been first class, both by the players and the fans and it’s really important that the fans stay with the players, through the ups and the downs.

“The latter is much harder, but that’s when the power of a club comes through and that has to remain.

“The players get more freedom to go and play and that builds momentum.”

Clarets Player has full commentary from Turf Moor tomorrow, from 2.45pm.
