Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists he is still focused on avoiding relegation despite moving 10 points clear of the drop zone last weekend.

The Clarets, 21.00 to be relegated, picked up their second point of the season as they drew 1-1 with Hull at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday.

Tom Huddlestone’s penalty was cancelled out by a rare Michael Keane goal and that result leaves Burnley 11th in the Premier League table at present.

Dyche’s side have not won since the end of January with two draws and a defeat to Watford seeing them drop down the table.

Some sections of the media have already ruled them out of the relegation race but Dyche is refusing to get carried away.

Burnley have yet to win away this season and they face Swansea, Liverpool and Sunderland away from home in the next few weeks.

Speaking about his team’s fortunes, Dyche told the Burnley Express: “Not mine. Mine stay steadfast to what I believe is correct for the group. Everyone else can have their version.

“My group know what I think and how I operate and that’s the key thing for me. The mantra of one game at a time remains in place.

We’ve stuck to a mantra ever since I’ve been at the club. To build something, you can only do it one piece at a time.

“Seasons get built one game at a time. It’s something we’ve focused on for a long time now.”
