Dyche - We're In The Groove

Dyche - We're In The Groove

Manager Sean Dyche has said he's very confident that Burnley have now found their groove following the two nil victory over Bolton Wanderers yesterday.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game press conference having seen record signing Andre Gray help himself to a brace in the second half, a pleased Dyche explained that he felt we were now roughly where we needed to be form wise given we sit joint second in the Championship table.

'It was a hard-earned win. I thought Neil`s side came here with plenty of energy, belief and some very good quality, certainly early in the match. In the opening 25 minutes they had the lion`s share of possession but eventually I felt we grew into the game in the last 15 minutes of the half and had two really big chances. I just felt we were finding our groove a little bit and in the second half I thought overall we ran out worthy winners.'

Dyche went on to say that for him there were some very good passages of play in the game and some 'good moments' from us that showed things were really being taken on board, and also that things were really beginning to gel for us again on the pitch. And even in the opening 30 minutes or so where he felt they were on top, we were still organised, tight and disciplined.

'We are not expecting teams to come here and lie down, and we respect them. But the respect we have is also a self-respect in the way we go about things, in terms of framework and belief and I thought it was all on show today. The two centre halves were excellent and dealt with most of the threats, and we played some excellent football and we`re beginning to find that better mix with the ball. That was shown in the chances we created today and we took two.'

As for Gray's double, Dyche went on to say about the goals.

'The goals were both good quality in their own rights and Andre has that thirst for goals. For the second, his run is fantastic because he holds it and it`s a great little reverse pass form Scott. Andre then finishes it as good strikers do, without a single thought other than he was going to score.'

The only downside to the day was seeing George Boyd hobble off injured during the second period with an ankle problem.

'George just rolled his ankle. It was an unfortunate, but we`ll assess him in the coming days and I`ll get some news then from the physios.'
