SEAN Dyche admitted he was ‘incredibly frustrated’ and felt it was the wrong decision not to allow Chris Wood’s goal to stand.

The Kiwi striker looked to have levelled matters for the Clarets but his goal eight minutes from time was controversially ruled out by referee Jonathan Moss for an apparent foul of Foxes defender Jonny Evans.

“First of all, for the record, I’m going to say it again, I am a big fan of VAR and I do think it’s needed in the game,” said Dyche. “However, it has got to be used more wisely than that.

“Chris Wood has not changed his running gait and he only has eyes on the ball - and Jonny Evans is not getting back to make the clearance in a million years.

“These glitches are things that will hopefully be streamlined, but the other thing is the referee made quite a big deal today of coming into our dressing room before the game and telling us that if he had to look at something on the screen then we would have to tolerate the time that takes.

"But he didn’t even go over and use the screen. “There is contact definitely but there’s a difference between deliberate contact and non-deliberate contact.

“The players are incredibly frustrated. I’m incredibly frustrated.

“But I remain a fan of VAR. However, it needs streamlining.”

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers sympathised with Dyche on an emotional day for the club that marked the anniversary of the death of former owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

“I can see where Sean is coming from. If you get it against you then you’re feeling hard done by,” he said.

“For Burnley, and it being so late in the game, it’s hard to take. It’s one of those than can go either way, but we’ll take it.” Rodgers felt his side’s second-half performance was a fitting tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash when leaving the King Power Stadium, which also killed four others.

“I thought the reaction in the second half was absolutely brilliant,” said Rodgers.

“To get the three points and to give the supporters that feeling and for Khun Topp (Vichai’s son) as well, it was really, really nice. “I saw Khun Topp before and we wanted this to be a celebration today, and there was a lot of emotion around the stadium. “'Fight’ and ‘spirit’ are key words that I have heard a lot about his father since I came into the club and I think our players showed that in the second half and they deserve a huge amount of credit because emotionally it wasn’t easy.

“To get the three points against a good side with everything that surrounded the game today - it was really pleasing.”
