Sean Dyche calls for Clarets consistency

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has called on his side to find some consistency as they seek to move clear of the Premier League drop zone.

The Clarets head to Huddersfield on Wednesday in 18th spot, level on 15 points with Southampton in the final safe position immediately above them.

Burnley did pick up a morale boosting win over West Ham last time out and Dyche has urged his side to back that up with a victory over the Premier League’s bottom club.

He told reporters: “In my six years [at Burnley] this is probably the second spell I’ve had where it’s been super tough.

I had a spell at the end of my first half-season and this is probably the next one.

“Some of these players have been under the radar for a long, long time and the summer changes all of that.

They’re human beings, they’re maturing, growing. They’re more recognised Premier League players and that has a little price to pay.

“You’ve got to keep your standards high, keep that edge and desire. They keep popping up with performances when needed. Now it’s about finding that consistency.”

Burnley are 3.80 to win on Wednesday, Huddersfield can be backed at 2.25 and a draw is 3.00.

The Clarets are without Steven Defour, Stephen Ward, Aaron Lennon and Nick Pope but Matt Lowton is available after a ban and Robbie Brady could be involved after returning to training.
