Manager Dyche content with Burnley’s positive week

By | December 17, 2017

Burnley recorded 1-0 wins over Watford and Stoke City before Saturday’s goalless draw with Brighton and Hove Albion to climb to fifth position in the league.

“It was a tight game. They (Brighton) rested players to go down to Tottenham Hotspur in the week and they obviously viewed this as a big game and one they could win,” Dyche said after the match.

“I’m pleased that they didn’t and I’m pleased that we had a third clean sheet and seven points in a week. In the Premier League that’s a tough ask and I’m delighted with the players for their week’s work.”

The Englishman reserved special praise for his defence and goalkeeper Nick Pope after the hard-earned draw at the Amex Stadium.

Burnley face fellow top four contenders Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently seventh in the league, next weekend.
