Mental toughness praised by Dyche
PREMIER LEAGUE: Burnley boss Sean Dyche commended his side for finding a way to win when they were below their best.
The Clarets posted their fourth successive Premier League victory when they beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Saturday to maintain their European hopes for next season.
It was not a vintage performance by any means as Watford were the better team and led through Roberto Pereyra’s 60th-minute strike.
But two goals in three secondhalf minutes from Sam Vokes – 22 seconds after coming off the bench – and Jack Cork kept Burnley’s run going.
Dyche said: “We had a strong mentality. It was a good win for different reasons, especially after making a couple of changes.”
