Burnley manager, Sean Dyche has expressed his happiness with The Clarets’ performance against Fulham at Turf Morf, lauding the efforts of the club forwards.


The tie between Burnley and Fulham ended in a 1-1 stalemate. Nigeria’s Ola Aina broke the deadlock for Scot Parker’s men at the 49th minute, but Ashley Barnes- assisted by Jay Rodrigues- denied the Londoners of a potential win, scoring two minutes after the Nigerian goal action.

The Clarets are eight points higher than Fulham– who are in the relegation zone- on the Premier League table.

Dyche made a lot of observations about the tie between the clubs, lauding his side effort for being strong and disallowing Parker’s men to get hold of them.
“We were strong first half and didn’t leave them a lot of chances. We created a few moments ourselves and looked effective from set-pieces. We looked a real threat once again.” Sean Dyche said
“The game settled a bit. We conceded a soft goal from our point of view. We should deal with the first contact, but definitely the second contact. Our player just swipes at it rather than putting a clean foot through it.” He stressed.


He lauded Barnes and Rodriguez for their efforts in the match, describing the goal action as ‘very clever’.
“But the reaction was fantastic. It was a great bit of play from Jay Rodriguez, a very clever play. A lovely weighted ball to put Barnes (Ashley Barnes) in for a good finish.”
On the equalizer, It was a clever play. I thought those two stuck at it.
“They were excellent against Palace and they stuck at it physically last night against a side who were trying to get a front foot in the game.


Burnley will be hoping to go higher on the league log when they battle Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich Albion next Saturday at Turf Morf.
