Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, believes that his side continue improving despite being beaten by Crystal Palace in their latest match and extending their winless run to six straight matches.
Bakary Sako scored the only goal of the match and he made sure that Crystal Palace grabbed another three points for a 1-0 victory over Sean Dyche’s Burnley – and after an amazing start to the season, this club has started to suffer a bit. Despite that poor run, they still remain in touch with the top 6 and the coach believes that they will learn from this hard period of the season.
The talented British coach spoke about the recent performances as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I don’t really concern myself with too much, only if the team’s moving forward and they are, so that’s the bigger picture. The immediate picture is that it [the poor form] is a fact, but you only have to go back four games before that and we’d won three out of four, so if you mix it all together then the season is certainly in front of the curve I’d say.”
He continued by adding that they have come a long way to be there: “We’ve come a long way as a club and I was so pleased in the second half; we are on the front foot, we are going after teams away from home and that’s a good sign of some of the work we’ve done and the way the team has progressed this season.”
In the end, Sean Dyche claimed that the second-half performance was really good: “I was pleased particularly with the second half today. I thought they were better in the first half and they played a very simple format but delivered it well in a 4-2-4, getting the ball forward quickly and looking a handful.”
