Dyche hoping to address Burnley form


Sean Dyche is keen to get to the bottom of Burnley's recent poor run and will use the international break to 'reflect and make sense of it'.

Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Leicester was Burnley's fourth consecutive loss in the Premier League and they are just two points above the relegation zone with seven matches remaining.

The Clarets, who have played a game more than 18th placed Cardiff, face Wolves after the international breaks with games against Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal to come before the end of the season.

Dyche is hoping the players who are not on international duty use the break to clear their minds for the run-in and he admits there is work to be done to ensure they address the poor form.

"It's time to reflect and make sense of it. There's got to be work and there has to be a rest for the players as well," he told the club's official website.

"The thought on that is to make sure they clear their minds and get ready to go again because that's the nature of the Premier League and get ready for the next challenges that are to come.

"There's a lot of football to be played and we have to get back to the feel of what we do. We're not a million miles away.

“We’re in a shape we possibly couldn’t have been in at Christmas, so that’s the bigger picture.

“But we’ve got more work to do. That’s nailing it down. We’ve got more to do.”
