Burnley boss Dyche hoping for key Cup win against Spurs

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is seeking victory tonight against Carabao Cup opponents Tottenham.

The Clarets are winless in the league so far, though performances have been improving in recent weeks and they took a point at Southampton at the weekend.

Staying in the Premier League will be their top priority, but Dyche hopes seeing off Spurs could help with that.

“The mood is good, a positive display down at Southampton, a few positive displays recently, trying to find the win is the next.

“All winning increases the feel, we are well aware of how important the league programme is for the club of course, but it is still nice to do well in these trophies if you can do.

“We have got through the first two rounds. It will not be easy against Tottenham whether they make changes or not, they are still a very high-level group of footballers, but we like to think ours are growing and getting fitter. We will definitely take on the game.

“We have changed the team in the previous rounds, we have put a team out that I believe we can win and we have done. It is no easy task playing anyone, especially Tottenham, we know that. We will look to make changes, but I believe in the group.

“We are nearly there back to full fitness, we want that to remain, so I imagine we will be making changes."
