Burnley boss Sean Dyche: Don't be bluffed by Hull crisis talk

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has dismissed claims Hull City are a "crisis club".

The two teams drew 1-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Dyche was keen to suggest that the notion of Hull as a crisis club did not quite reflect the strength of their first XI, which here included nine capped internationals.

"Don't be bluffed by this 'woe is Hull' story, they have a lot of experienced players and some of those players cost a lot of money," he said.

"We are back in the Premier League and it's not an easy task. I thought we probably edged the game. It was tight but I thought we did just enough and probably should have seen the game out.

"But it happens, we've done it to many others teams since I've been here."
