Dyche: Our home form is crucial

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admitted his side’s home form will prove pivotal following their 3-1 loss to Southampton at St Marys.

Former Burnley man Charlie Austin opened the scoring in the 52nd minute when he scrambled the ball over the line, followed by his second in the 66th minute after he finished from the spot.

Nathan Redmond’s influential performance was complimented with a goal in the 60th minute after his powerful shot proved too much for Tom Heaton, who at times kept the visitors in the game.

"We should have had a penalty at 0-0 which would make the game different. That's stretching it a bit because they are a very good side but we needed that decision." Dyche told the BBC.

"They got a very soft penalty, minimal contact if any. But this is not making excuses, they could have scored seven more, but you need those decisions to go your way."

Burnley are now a point off the relegation places and Dyche believes their home form will decide if the Clarets will beat the drop.

"We know home form is important for us. We have shown bravery at home and we have to take games on away from home now." Dyche continued.

"A bit more bravery to play with freedom. We are tense away from home."

Burnley’s next game will be at Turf Moor on the 22nd of October where they will face in-form Everton.
