Dyche hails Rangers win as finest in his year
SEAN Dyche labelled Burnley’s win over QPR as his best in a year at Turf Moor.
The Clarets boss will reach the 12-month milestone on Wednesday, and any celebrations will have been made all the sweeter for Saturday’s success which kept his side top of the table.
“I think there have been some very good performances but because of the fact it’s arguably the biggest game of the day in our division against a team with a great manager and a very strong group of players and very strong record so far – with all of that, and then to give the performance we did, it makes it one of the best if not the best,” said Dyche.
“I think because of the nature of the opposition it is.
“But I could have said that against Reading the other week. I thought that was a fine performance and there have been quite a few lately, so it’s a good position to be in.”
Danny Ings hit the headlines with a second half double that condemned promotion favourites QPR to their first league defeat.
But while Dyche continues to be pleased with his top scorer’s contribution, he praised a team effort, both on and off the pitch.
“I’m very pleased – delighted with the things I talk about a lot, the tactical framework of the team, the understanding the players are finding, the energy, the effervescence of the team but most of all the quality. I thought some of the quality was absolutely excellent,” said the Burnley boss.
“The first goal was good enough to grace most pitches – the movement, the link play, the pace of it and of course the quality of the finish. There were many good things.
“Overall I was very happy with the first half but made it clear to the players at half-time that they were going to have to go even harder because they’re not an easy group of players to crack.”
