Dy­che: Clarets won’t be blue

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

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.
