Burnley boss Dyche: Green was difference for QPR

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits an inspired Robert Green was key to QPR's win yesterday.

Green tipped George Boyd's swerving first-half piledriver strike onto the post at Loftus Road, before Rangers sealed victory through goals from Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin.

Dyche admitted his side failed to sustain the "clinical" edge that had drawn eight points from their previous four games.

"There's a tinge of disappointment, but it's still a tough game against a very experienced side," said Dyche.

"Rob Green made one absolute worldy save and another very good save from Scotty Arfield.

"We need to be more clinical, we knew that and we have started to be that, but we just weren't today.

"I think they know they had a game today, but you take wins how they come and I certainly would."
