‘Relentless’ Clarets set new unbeaten home record with Lions victory

This Is Lancashire: Burnley celebrate their win over Millwall Burnley celebrate their win over Millwall

SEAN Dyche hailed his ‘relentless’ players after Burnley’s 3-1 win over Millwall extended their unbeaten home run to a new post-war record of 19 league games.

The Clarets came from behind to secure a comfortable victory on Saturday and prolong an 11-month sequence without a league defeat at Turf Moor.

The run has now surpassed the previous record of 18 matches unbeaten, set during the 1956/57 season and also in 1973.

Dyche said: “I’ve made it clear on several occasions if you get your performance level right, it attracts wins, and with wins, good things come to you, and we’ve had a few records this year.

“It’s not my main focus, but I don’t take them lightly at a club with a rich history like this.

“We’re relentless in our attitude in training, and in the way we play.

“Disappointments sometimes happen, but that relentless mentality, as long as it’s collective, doesn’t guarantee you a win, but gives you a whole better chance.

“I was really proud and commended the players for the way they reacted after going behind. They didn’t panic.”

Dyche also reserved praise for goalscorers Dean Marney and Danny Ings, with the latter recovering from a missed penalty to bag his second of the game.

“In the second half Danny was effervescent as ever.

“And Deano was a shining light with his energy and will to play.”

Relentless is a good way to describe Burnley's recent performances.

Full of energy, drive, determination, skill and quality. A good mixture for success this season.

Records tumbling all season and more to come. Come on Derby tomorrow night. I couldn't help noticing on Saturday that even when we went behind the crowd didn't get despondent. It didn't phase us at all because we have come to realise that Burnley are now the archetypal "team that doesn't know when they are beaten". We have a self-belief that is beyond belief, even that great observer Ian Holloway (I'm a big fan) said as much at weekend.
Keep up the great work Sean and the boys, you CAN make it happen.
