Clarets boss is sure his men can recover from Turf loss

This Is Lancashire: Assistant boss Ian Woan and Sean Dyche reflect on a rare loss Assistant boss Ian Woan and Sean Dyche reflect on a rare loss

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche admitted he had no complaints about losing to leaders Leicester City, but was disappointed with decisions that went against them.

The Clarets were up against it after second top scorer Sam Vokes went off early with a knee injury.

But after David Nugent broke the deadlock with his ninth goal against his old club, Dyche felt his side were not helped by big moments in the game – namely a penalty for a double handball that went unnoticed, and a push on Michael Duff in the build-up to Chris Wood’s second.

“They’ve had to score two very good goals, though the second one’s a foul – I think it’s a soft foul but it’s a foul – and I thought we had a penalty that wasn’t given but that’s a regular thing this season,” said Dyche.

“It was a handball. The lad can’t win the header and I think he’s just thrown his body at it and David Jones heads it onto his arm.

“They’re the fine margins, but beyond that I thought they deserved the win. I felt a couple of decisions didn’t go for us but overall they deserved the win.

“They’re a very good side. At full strength I would have liked to have gone toe-to-toe without the challenges of our team.”

Burnley went into the game knowing a win by two goals or more would send them top. But already without the suspended Dean Marney and injured duo Kieran Trippier and leading marksman Danny Ings, they had to play for more than 85 minutes without second top scorer Vokes.

That meant the Clarets switching from their preferred 4-4-2 formation to 4-1-4-1, with Ashley Barnes – their only fit and available recognised front man – leading the line.

“It’s not ideal and obviously as everyone knows we’re down to one at the moment. Then it’s trying to be flexible as a group,” said Dyche.

“We sort of stayed in it.

“They were two poor goals to concede by our standards and Scotty (Arfield) has had a great chance. If that goes in it changes the feel maybe.

“But I’ve got no complaints.

“It s a side that’s been constructed for a couple of quid and kept together, and been allowed to develop.”

Of the prognosis for Vokes, Dyche added: “It’s too early yet. We’ve got the next 24-48 hours for it to settle.

“It’s not ideal when no-one’s kind of near them. They’re always the ones that you wonder about. But we’ll have to wait and see.”

The second one was a fowl? Duff looked a right numpty, is Dyche wanting a game for faireys? Face up, we were beaten fair and suare by a much better team and our lack of depth was exposed. Just what everyone has been saying all season. We'll probably stumble over the line a QPR have no spirit but what hope have we got next season with this ginger chancer who's basically taken the benefit of Howe's work.

Burnley have 7 games to play. Recent form over previous 7 games:

Burnley: P7 W5 D1 L1, points: 16 out of 21. position 2nd
QPR: P7 W4 D1 L2, points: 13 out of 21. position 3rd
...
Blackburn: P7 W1 D3 L3, points: 6 out of 21, position 12th

Burnley are effectively 10 points clear of 3rd place with 7 games to play.

Burnley are 27 (TWENTY-SEVEN) points above Blackburn Rovers.

If Burnley take just 10 points from the remaining 21 available (say W3 D1 L3) then we will achieve 89 points.

QPR are currently on 70 points with a goal difference of -16.

For QPR to achieve the required 90 points from their remaining games they will have to take a minimum 20 points from the 21 available (i.e win all of their 7 remaining games, six wins and a draw will not be enough).

QPR have to play: Bournemouth (a), Blackburn (a), Nottingham Forest (h), Leicester (a), Watford (h), Millwall (h), Barnsley (a).

If Burnley achieve 11 points from 21 available (say W3 D2 L2), QPR have to win all 7 of their remaining games and in the process score 17 goals more than Burnley.

If Burnley achieve 12 points, QPR cannot mathematically overtake Burnley.

In summary, if Blackburn Rovers beat QPR on the 8th of April Burnley will achieve 2nd place in the Championship and promotion to the Premier League.

A sobering thought for all no-dads.

Nice sentiments FNQ, you are a quality side and will deservedly be promoted as Champions - our small squad caught up with us, being without the three players voted into the Championship team of the year (Ings, Vokes and Trippier) as well as the influential Dean Marney.

See you next year at the big table (Blackburn fans take note)

At the moment we're on a high.. come next season we all know what it's going to like for both teams. Hope we play you next season...enjoyed the day, good luck for the rest of the season.[/p][/quote]Nice sentiments FNQ, you are a quality side and will deservedly be promoted as Champions - our small squad caught up with us, being without the three players voted into the Championship team of the year (Ings, Vokes and Trippier) as well as the influential Dean Marney. See you next year at the big table (Blackburn fans take note) Champagne plus charlie

Burnley have 7 games to play. Recent form over previous 7 games:

Burnley: P7 W5 D1 L1, points: 16 out of 21. position 2nd
QPR: P7 W4 D1 L2, points: 13 out of 21. position 3rd
...
Blackburn: P7 W1 D3 L3, points: 6 out of 21, position 12th

Burnley are effectively 10 points clear of 3rd place with 7 games to play.

Burnley are 27 (TWENTY-SEVEN) points above Blackburn Rovers.

If Burnley take just 10 points from the remaining 21 available (say W3 D1 L3) then we will achieve 89 points.

QPR are currently on 70 points with a goal difference of -16.

For QPR to achieve the required 90 points from their remaining games they will have to take a minimum 20 points from the 21 available (i.e win all of their 7 remaining games, six wins and a draw will not be enough).

QPR have to play: Bournemouth (a), Blackburn (a), Nottingham Forest (h), Leicester (a), Watford (h), Millwall (h), Barnsley (a).

If Burnley achieve 11 points from 21 available (say W3 D2 L2), QPR have to win all 7 of their remaining games and in the process score 17 goals more than Burnley.

If Burnley achieve 12 points, QPR cannot mathematically overtake Burnley.

In summary, if Blackburn Rovers beat QPR on the 8th of April Burnley will achieve 2nd place in the Championship and promotion to the Premier League.

A sobering thought for all no-dads.
I bet you wrote that in about 10 seconds with your 12 fingers

One season and Burney fans are having an orgy with each other- like every dingle household I suspect
Poor old Blackburn - it must really really hurt to see your better neighbours smashing everything before them this season on their way to automatic promotion - something you neanderthals can only dream about happening.

This is why they keep flagellating themselves by still posting on the Burnley pages on this website. In effect it is a form of self-harming and they really should be receiving some kind of medical help to prevent themselves from the torture they are inflicting upon themselves.

No argument with the result. Best team won by a decent margin as we struggled to adjust with several of our key players out through injury and suspension. Losing Vokes early on was unfortunate and had us rattled from the start. Would have been nice to play you at full strength and hopefully we'll get that chance next season in the Premier League. To go up would top a fantastic season with the bigger picture of the huge financial boost being vital to both clubs. Best of luck to you.

Unlike your team who are dropping like a lead weight to the bottom o the championship. Just keep reminding yourself of that next season when you play the likes of Preston and Doncaster. As for Turf Moor Bubbe Pop Fake T*ts enough said.

'Fowl' - what a complete tool. We know you have chicken on the brain but the only fowl seen on a football pitch had a bstd scarf on its back and was last seen running across ewood, just before you got turned over by Burnley 2-1. So having spent how much over the past 4 years, how is it you have failed to beat us? After all you do claim to be superior but I'm struggling to see where. You were 10th in the league the other week then dropped a place to 11th, now let me see where you are now. .....just a sec..............han

After the post you wrote the other day, completely forgetting you were logged on as tmt, I'd have thought you would have abandoned that user name and introduced a new one to your long list. You really do win, without doubt, Bellsmash of the season.

I don't have to explain anything do I.

You were crap on the day on your second biggest game of the season, a game that had you won 2-0 would have put you at the top of the league.

12,000 including Leicester fans turning up for such an important game? And half of them gone with 10 minutes to go.

Nope, says it all, I don't have to explain anything at all do I.

Factually incorrect owd nick, try again.
2nd biggest game? Our biggest game will be the one that sees us over the line. Bstds, which turned out to be a walk over, was nothing more than box ticking along the way. Your nothing more than a struggling mid table championship side both now and when we played you so don't flatter yourself.
