Burnley boss Dyche on Wolves win: I've always marvelled at our mentality

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was delighted with his players after their 2-0 win over Wolves.

Burnley led inside 90 seconds when Chris Wood's shot from a tight angle hit the post before going in off Wolves captain Conor Coady. Dwight McNeil then sealed victory with a superb solo strike as the hosts ended a run of four straight defeats and moved five points clear of the relegation zone.

Dyche said: "It is a very important three points. The main thing was that, although we've played better, the detail was in the basics - doing the ugly, hard stuff to make sure we didn't give them too much. That was important.

"I've always marvelled at the mentality of the players. We had a real hit against Leicester when we dominated game and lost in the last minute - but we've had a break and the players are back energised.

"That bodes well and we have to maintain that and get points on the board. But today is a good sign of the mentality of the players."
