Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists his team have their destiny in their own hands as they prepare for the final few weeks of the Premier League campaign.

The Clarets remain locked in a relegation battle as they sit 17th in the league table after 31 games. Dyche’s men have lost their last four games in the league and they are now just two points above the bottom three.

Cardiff sit below them and have a game in hand, as do Southampton who are level on points in 16th. Burnley have found life tough after starting the campaign in the Premier League but Dyche insists his team are mentally ready for the fight as they prepare to take on Wolves.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It gets to a point, which is now, where it’s still right in our grasp, where it wasn’t at Christmas.

“I think we’ve come a long way since that build-up to Christmas. “It’s easy to forget we only had 12 points at 19 games. We’ve now got 30, so that’s a pretty healthy return. Now, we’ve got to continue to build on that.

“Since Christmas the actual form has been good. The last run has been tough, obviously. But if you mix that altogether, you’d certainly take the return in points. “But we’ve got to get more. That’s just what it tells you on the league table.”

Burnley are 3.00 to win this weekend, while the draw is 3.20. Wolves are still chasing a top-seven spot and they are priced at 2.50 to grab all three points.
