Dyche: Clarets won’t be blue
BULLISH Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists the Clarets can still save themselves.
Dyche’s side went into the international break in the bottom three as they look to avoid an instant return to the Championship.
Their next two games are at home to Spurs and Arsenal, which won’t make their task any easier.
But the Clarets are just a point behind freefalling Sunderland and Dyche believes his underdogs can defy the odds and beat the drop.
Dyche said: “I’ve stayed confident. You’ve got to remember that about three seconds after we got promoted, they said we’ve got no chance next year. But we’re in there fighting.
“People keep writing about us struggling, but how are we struggling? “They thought we’d need snookers by Christmas.
“There’s no struggle for us other than our own personal one where we think we’ve deserved more. “We’ll give our all to stay up – I can assure you of that.”
Midfielder Matt Taylor is building up his fitness to return to action next month after being out since August following Achilles surgery.
