Sean Dyche feels Clarets ready for Cherries test

Burnley boss Sean Dyche feels beating Wolves last time out has changed his players’ mindset but insists they are all ready to face Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Clarets saw off Nuno Espirito Santos’s men 2-0 at the weekend to move on to 33 points – five clear of 18th-placed Cardiff City.

It remains to be seen how many points they will need to stay up this term but one more win might be all that is required to beat the drop.

The Turf Moor outfit cannot afford to get too complacent, however, as they have still to play Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal during the end-of-season run-in.

Dyche will ensure they head to the south coast in the right frame of mind this weekend and feels they have prepared as well as ever despite opening up daylight between themselves and the bottom three.

“There’s always a slight shift in mentality when you win,” he said.

“A tiny bit of looseness comes back. “But I think the demand here has been good anyway. Even early season when things weren’t going our way, I thought the training standard was good.”

Burnley are 3.60 to take all three points at the Vitality Stadium, with the Cherries 2.10 and the draw priced at 3.50.

Dyche has never been one to rest on his laurels and is confident his charges will be right at it again on Saturday. “They’ve certainly been bright this week; full of energy and ready to go,” he added.
