Sean Dyche insists his Burnley players deserve full credit as they move closer to securing another Premier League football season.
Burnley begins Monday’s meeting with Champions League fighter West Ham nine points out of the relegation zone after playing one game less than 18th Fulham.
After a season of challenges on and off the pitch, Burnley’s success in recovering from taking just two points in his first seven games has been compared to qualifying for Europe in 2018, with Dyche claiming that this was due to the hard work of his team.
“It was difficult for a lot of reasons,” Dyche said. “I don’t like doing it too much because we’re not there, we still have a lot of work to do, but even getting to where we are now has been difficult.
“There have been a lot of challenges on and off the pitch: a sale that took forever, a lack of investment from the exiting board at an important time, the release of players at an important time, the new board coming in at an important time. hard time at the end of a window, and full of injuries.
“But beyond all of these challenges, we showed a really strong jawbone, like we were tagged a few years ago by Ian Holloway. We have been very strong mentally, and that’s as much on the part of the players as it is on me and the staff.
“I am always proud of the players. Winning, losing or drawing, they always give us a lot. I said in my very first squeeze here, the only thing I will guarantee is sweat on the jersey and that meant players giving a lot to do what we do.
“Nothing is done yet but we have come a long way and now it is time to finish it with a series of solid performances to make sure we do what we want to do and that it will be in the Premier League. “
Chris Wood will start Monday’s game looking to build on a six-goal streak in as many games for Burnley, highlighted by his hat-trick in last weekend’s 4-0 win over Wolves that brought the New Zealand striker to double the numbers for a hat-trick. fourth consecutive campaign with the Clarets.
The 29-year-old had a series of loan spells earlier in his career, but was able to establish himself as a consistent performer on Turf Moor.
“Woody found a home here, but he worked to make it happen,” Dyche said. “He didn’t hope that would happen, he worked on his game and his understanding of what we do to make sure it becomes his home. “
Burnley struggled to score goals early in the season, but Wood’s partnership with Matej Vydra in recent weeks has made him a much more consistent scoring threat.
“The game is always the best coach,” said Dyche. “We inspire people, of course we do, but sometimes we let them find their own way. At the start of the season, when we hadn’t scored any goals, we hadn’t overanalyzed their play or picked fouls.
“We talk to them to tell them that it will come, that we continue to get into the right areas and that it will come. He was almost unloading him, telling them to come into the zone not to think too much about it, to play their natural game and the performance will come.
“They ripen as we nudge them and push them to ripen, but that’s always them. It’s still the players and they get the credit the way they should. “

Watching Gareth Bale score a stylish hat-trick for Tottenham Hotspur in the 4-0 win over Sheffield United has been a bittersweet moment for the club’s fans. The Real Madrid-loaned Welshman’s return to the club he lit in his first spell has been a kind of wet spit with ex-manager Jose Mourinho reluctant to give Bale a regular starting spot.
