Burnley boss Sean Dyche delighted at Vokes' impact

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has praised Sam Vokes’ hunger for first team football, and goals.
The striker scored for the second game in a row to extend the Clarets’ unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 win over Yeovil Town at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “That hunger is growing. He was disappointed the lad (Luke Ayling) cleared one off the line from him.”
And Dyche praised the way Vokes is using his 6ft 2ins frame to his advantage to offer a more physical presence up front.
“The game’s changing and you want a toughness to your players, but it has to be tempered with refereeing and the way the game has changed,” said the Burnley boss.
“It’s about a clever toughness, not running around smashing people.
“Sam is toughening his resolve, the way he plays and the way he conducts himself.
“And that’s down to how good a shape he’s in.”
Dyche was also pleased with the impact Keith Treacy made, scoring the first from a cross-shot.
"I'm not bothered if he meant it or not, it was a hell of a strike. I don't know whether it caught the keeper out or what, but it was a tough ball to deal with,” said the Burnley boss.
