Dyche ecstatic for 'different reasons' as Burnley end winless streak

Sean Dyche was elated after Burnley turned their season around with an emphatic 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

It was the Clarets lifted themselves off the bottom of the Premier League table with their first win of the campaign.

Speaking after the game, Dyche said: "We had a good chat in the week, reminded ourselves what we're about, reminded them how far they have come, reminded them how proud I am to work with the group, reminded them there's more to come. I said we had to fight for the right.

"We've been written off many times and then it's about shoulders back, taking on the challenge and I thought today we did. I'm very pleased for many different reasons. But it's a start.

"It's not the finish because we won a game, it's a start to remind ourselves, 'okay, we're capable, we have to fight, we have to play'.

"When you haven't got your first win, there's a nervousness and you could feel it at times. But that goes away. That first win kills all the noise and then it's about where you're going to go from here."
