Burnley boss Dyche not concerned about Sheffield Wednesday draw

This Is Lancashire: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche praised scorer Sam Vokes for a ‘first class’ performance, and told his players not to get worked up about the win they should have earned against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Clarets bossed Saturday’s Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday but Vokes’ opener was cancelled out by Chris Maguire.

The Clarets dropped below QPR to third but extended their unbeaten home league run to 17 games.

And Dyche said that statistic was not to be underestimated.

“It’s a good marker. It makes people aware that it’s a tough place to come and it certainly is,” said the Burnley boss.

“If we keep giving performances like that we know where it takes you and that’s winning lots of games.

“You’ve got to look at the performance and I’m very happy with that performance.

“I really enjoyed it. I thought we played some good mixed football.

“I think it’s the most effective way of putting the opposition on the back foot.

“We want the players to find that mixture – can they play long to stretch teams but then can they play on the in betweens, get the full backs on and put good quality into the box?

“I thought there was all of that.”

Of individual efforts, Dyche added: “I thought Sam Vokes was absolutely first class. Dean Marney and David Jones again, all the good habits were there for everyone to see.

“Danny Ings had a number of chances and showed some real good qualities. He’s kept one low and hit the post, got through and – unlike him – just hit one in the keeper’s hands, had another one which was a great save, Jonah’s had one cleared off the line, in the first half Marney puts one past the post.”

Dyche was disappointed with the equaliser, saying: “It was a really poor goal from us.

“We’d just scored and was a silly free kick, which is unlike us, and then didn’t deal with a ball into the box.”

But he refused to dwell on their disappointment.

“Our markers have been fantastic defensively this year,” he said.

“I put a lot of pressure on the team to deliver better than that but they have done at large so I’m not going to over question that.”

Totally agree SD.

I have seen us play much much worse than Saturday and pick up three points.

We dominated the game possession wise, created a host of chances and were unlucky not to score more than one goal.

I have to say that, of late, there have been momentary lapses in concentration in the back four, especially when Lafferty is last man against a cross from open play or from a set piece.

Ironic that I write this really. We see so much now that it is of such a high quality. I agree totally with what Champagne writes - we were so dominate in that match. 1 -1 is a pinch yourself scoreline. 23 chances. Incredible.

Agree, although I thought Lafferty had a much improved display on Saturday compared to the last game.

I think Scott Arfield's decision making was off in the second half, and Danny Ings should have scored at least one (Although he was particularly unlucky in the second half, hitting the post and having one cleared off the line).

Defensively I agree Rob that we do have a tendancy to switch off at vital moments, and the Wednesday goal was a perfect example of this - a silly free kick and vital header missed = goal.

Overall though, still creating a host of chances and visiting teams are recognising how good we are and even Stuart Gray said in his post match comments that their game plan was to stop Ings and Vokes - a testament to our side.

but on this occasion it was Duff who was at fault and perhaps Trippier for coming off the line. Lafferty wasn't anything to do with it!

Absolutely, it was Duff and Trippier that erred - just making the point about the long ball and Lafferty as last-man generally. I think Arfield has drifted off in decision making too, but only marginally. So many sides miss his strike potential as they are so busy picking up Ings and Vokes. He's a vital weapon for us.

Have to say that I felt bitterly disappointed with Burnley's draw on Saturday. It is games against teams in the lower half of the division we should be using to amass points, we are going to need them. Burnley are good enough this season for second-spot promotion, but they won't do it dropping points like they did on Saturday.

Dyche is right in what he says, no sense getting upset with just a draw, but this season Burnley have dropped a fair number of points against lower-half teams, and it is disconcerting. We even had 'home' advantage Saturday!

If Burnley had won the draws against lower-opposition (and I say that with all due respect to the other teams), they would be in first place, and with plenty of daylight between Burnley and Leicester and QPR. We should not be hoping for a play off place. Let the Dingle Dandles worry about that fantasy they have, we should be playing for 2nd spot in the least, and first spot at the best.

Going off your performance Saturday, you couldn't even make the play-pen, you moron! Get a grip...you lost, and you will lose against Derby!
