Sean Dyche admits there is still work to be done for Burnley but has called on his squad to be brave as they look to address their current drop in form.

The Clarets enjoyed an incredible first half of the season but performances have dropped off over the last month, and they are currently winless in eight games in all competitions following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Turf Moor.

Burnley’s last triumph came on December 12 when they edged out Stoke on home soil but Dyche is refusing to panic as they still remain eighth in the Premier League.

Injuries have undoubtedly caught up with Burnley’s tight knit squad with the likes of Tom Heaton, Robbie Brady, Jonathan Walters and Chris Wood all nursing long-term problems.

Dyche insists his team are by no means the finished article and admits they still have a lot of work to do as they attempt to become an established Premier League club, while he has conceded that he may even need to reinforce before the end of the month.

“We’ve still got work to do, but when you look at the points we’ve I think it’s clear to see how the team is moving forwards, both as individuals and as a unit,” Dyche told Burnley’s official website.

“We’ve got to continue to be brave, take the games on as and hopefully get a few bodies back. We’re hopeful on a few situations and also possibles on incomings. We’ll wait and see.”

Burnley will have the chance to bounce back quickly on Wednesday and they can be backed at 3.40 to pick up all three points from their trip to Newcastle, who are priced at 2.30, while the draw is available at 3.20.
