Beast urges Burnley not to lose hope

Former Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen has urged the Clarets not to lose faith.

Burnley slipped back to the bottom of the table after experiencing their heaviest defeat under Sean Dyche on Sunday, losing 4-0 at West Bromwich Albion.

The Beast told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "I don't think the gaffer has had the financial backing. I think it's a really tough one for him.

"You look at Leicester - one of the teams they've got to compete against - spending £8million on Leonardo Ulloa. That's the difference. Burnley have not broken their transfer record from the last time they were promoted.

"I'm not saying go out and buy a £25m striker, but you've got to improve what you've already got and I don't feel Burnley have done that."
