Clarets and Leicester draw

Burnley FC

8:15am 6th October 2014

Sean Dyche has hailed the ‘exceptional’ travelling support after Burnley came from behind to draw 2-2 at Leicester City.

Jeff Schlupp opened the scoring in the 33rd minute and after the Clarets had levelled through Michael Kightly, Riyad Mahrez put the Foxes ahead.

But the Clarets relentless tag was in evidence yet again, and as Burnley kept knocking at the door, Ross Wallace stepped up to curl home a beautiful free-kick in stoppage time and send the 2196 travelling fans into raptures.

Dyche said: “We’re very pleased and we came away from what we believe in a little bit last week and I think that was a reminder of what we’re all about.

“We believe in the team and the team believe in each other. We created chances and looked a real threat.

“All backed by a tremendous fan base today, I must say I thought they were absolutely exceptional.

“I’ve had some amazing times at this football club, as we all have, but I thought today the feel of the fans was immense.

“When Ross scored I was thinking to myself ‘that’s for you’ because they were top draw in the corner and their support was tremendous.”

Burnley bounced back from a disappointing defeat against West Bromwich Albion despite a number of injuries to key midfielders.

Kieran Trippier was also stretchered off after Jeff Schlupp’s late challenge but Dyche is hoping that it is not as bad as first feared.

And the Clarets boss was delighted with the way his side responded to claim a deserved point at the King Power Stadium, reserving praise for Stephen Ward, who was operating in an unfamiliar role in central midfield.

“We were back to the relentless tag today and I think generally we’ve been pretty pleased with the performances, bar West Brom of course, but we were back to that feel.

“Towards the end I felt it was inevitable, we kept Barnesy and two other forwards on and sometimes you can smell it in the air.

“I didn’t think it would come in that style admittedly because that is an unbelievable and a fantastic moment of quality from Ross.

“We’re hoping Tripps injury is not as bad as you first see with him going off on a stretcher, it’s a sore one of course, but we’re looking to use the international break to get bodies back.

“David Jones and Dean Marney we’re very confident on them and Tripps we’ll have to wait and see as it’s too early to tell.

“It was a tough call and we went through about 20 different thoughts on how the team should operate in terms of shape, positions and we wanted balance.

“I thought Stephen Ward delivered a very solid performance and I must say I thought Scott Arfield was incredible.
