That was a big game, says Dyche
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.”
