That was a big game, says Dy­che

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PREMIER LEAGUE: Burn­ley man­ager Sean Dy­che said the Clarets had taken “an­other big step for­ward” after they recorded their third suc­ces­sive league win with a 2-1 vic­tory over Ful­ham at Turf Moor.

Satur­day’s come-frombe­hind de­feat of the Cot­tagers, in which Burn­ley prof­ited from two own goals and did not regis­ter an ef­fort on tar­get, ex­tended a win­ning streak that has also seen them tri­umph 2-0 against West Ham and 2-1 at Hud­der­s­field Town.

In their pre­vi­ous out­ing be­fore that they suf­fered a ninth loss in 11 games as they were thrashed 5-1 by Ever­ton on Box­ing Day.

That loss left them 18th in the ta­ble, three points from safety, but they are now 15th, three points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

Dy­che said after the clash with sec­ond-bot­tom Ful­ham: “We all know that’s a big game, an im­por­tant game.

“And three wins in the Premier League, two of them com­ing from one goal down to win as well, it’s good for the men­tal­ity and good for the points and the ta­ble of course.

“We’re get­ting some way back. This doesn’t solve ev­ery­thing, but three wins back-to-back is dif­fi­cult in the Premier League.

“It’s an­other big step for­ward, for the men­tal­ity, for the pro­duc­tiv­ity of the side.”
