Burnley News: Dyche happy to promote young duo; Taylor frustrated with Swansea defeat

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was happy to add two teens to his squad for their defeat at Swansea City.

Dyche believes teenagers Ollie Younger and Dwight McNeil will have benefited from a taste of life in the Premier League after travelling with the Clarets squad to Swansea.

"It's great for them to get a feel of it," Dyche said.

“They get a feel for the build-up, how we build-up, and a feel for the Premier League and the performance.

“It's an important part of their stepping stone.

“They are part of the group. They have been training with us and working with us and they have been showing good signs.

“They have got a lot of work to do yet, but when we can, they come and work with us and work with the team. And not just those two. Other players come and train with us. It's an on-going thing."

Meanwhile, Charlie Taylor was left frustrated after defeat to Swansea City.

Taylor would rather that game was this week, but he said Burnley would use their break to be extra prepared for the clash.

“I'd like to get back out there and try put it right as soon as possible," he said. “It is what it is, we'll have to wait two weeks. We'll use that to get prepared for Southampton.

“The next two weeks will be tough training, but it's what we need to do, we'll be doing all we can to put an end to the run."
