Men­tal tough­ness praised by Dy­che

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

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.”
