DY­CHE: ASH IS NO ALSO-RON

Daily Mirror - - MIRROR FOOTBALL - BY MIKE WHALLEY

SEAN DY­CHE cast his vote for goal of the week – and went for Ash­ley Barnes ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid for­ward Ronaldo scored one of the Cham­pi­ons League’s great goals with a bi­cy­cle kick (be­low) as Ju­ven­tus were swept aside 3-0 on Tues­day.

But Burn­ley striker Barnes at­tracted plenty of praise for a hooked vol­ley (above) that set up a 2-1 win at West Brom last Satur­day, for­mer Eng­land cap­tain Alan Shearer de­scrib­ing his tech­nique as “in­cred­i­ble”.

Dy­che is try­ing to guide his side into the Europa League, which would be helped if Barnes, a scorer in each of his past four games, can keep up his im­pres­sive form at Wat­ford to­day.

Asked whose was the bet­ter goal, the Clarets boss said: “I’ve got to say Bar­nesy, haven’t I? You know what Bar­nesy’s like, he’ll slaugh­ter me.

“They were both great goals. Great goals for dif­fer­ent rea­sons.

“Bar­nesy’s was re­ally dif­fi­cult to do in terms of body shape. It’s be­hind him. Fan­tas­tic tech­nique.”
