Still no goal haul for Burnley

Burnley FC

7:44am 22nd September 2014

Sean Dyche was proud of his players’ all-round display in the home stalemate against Sunderland.

The Clarets came within a whisker of earning their first Premier League victory as Ashley Barnes struck the bar late on in a game the hosts edged.

And after a third successive 0-0, Dyche felt his fast-improving stand on the cusp of their first victory.

He said: “Sometimes I have to talk around performances, but today I thought we were terrific.

“The fans were excellent again and I hope they enjoyed what they saw, which was a team organised and with energy and providing the ammunition to score goals.

"I think, like me they are probably scratching their heads at times, wondering when one is going to drop.

“One will come, but we are going about our business exactly how I planned it as a manager, which is in the right fashion that is appropriate for the team, myself and the fans.

“The players are delivering and there were more positive signs today. It’s very, very close and it’s our job now to make it happen.”

Dyche added: “I was very clean with the clean sheet again. It’s so hard to do that back-to-back. But as I say the framework and energy is spot on, as was the football we played.

“I am not a zealot to just rolling it around; that’s not my bag. I want the players to affect oppositions in as many ways as we can and they have the freedom to do that.

“The balance of the side was even better today. Defensively the framework of the side was good and we created enough chances to win the game.

“It didn’t happen, but I thought overall we deserved more than we got and if we keep playing like that I am absolutely convinced that wins are around the corner.

“There were no question marks for me. I thought the performance was very good.

“I am not naive; I know we have to score to win games, but you also have to believe on performance levels and it’s my belief that through that you win games.

“You have to create chances to win and we did that today. The one on the second half on ‘Juke’ looked a penalty.

“Anywhere else on the pitch that’s a foul, so in the box it has to be given, that’s my opinion.”

Jutkiewicz, who scored six goals in pre-season, put in a man-of-the-match display to lead the Clarets line alongside Marvin Sordell, in the absence of Danny Ings.

And Dyche, who also revealed David Jones suffered a “minor thigh injury” late in the game, was quick to praise the targetman.

He said: “I think Juke was absolutely tremendous today, I was a centre half and I wouldn’t have enjoyed playing against him today. A goal would have capped things off, that’s for sure.

“He has been superb for us so far and George Boyd was also excellent. If there is a player who, on immediate showings, fits our culture and what we are about then it’s him.

“You sign a player and you want them to fit what we are about and I felt he was fantastic today.”
