‘First victory can be the start of something special’, claims Burnley gaffer

Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes that his side’s morale-boosting victory over Hull City on Saturday – their first in the Premier League this season – can help transform the Clarets’ campaign.

The Turf Moor outfit clinched victory with a second-half header from Ashley Barnes, and while they are still bottom of the table, Dyche is convinced that his side can rise up the league.

“The season is reshaping already. That three points already gives it a different twist. It’s amazing how much difference a win makes,” Dyche said.

“We knew we would win a game. A marker has been laid down now.

“But it is literally one game, so now it’s about two, three, four or five and whether we can go on the road and take that forward.”

“I believe in the players here and the believe hashtag of the club has been built from the beginning of last season through to where we are now.

“It’s great for everyone. We believe and I want the fans to believe and I think they do.

“The thing they certainly believe is that we have a manager, a staff and a playing squad who will give them everything.”

Next up for Sean Dyche’s men is an away fixture against Stoke City, where they will hope to build on their much-needed victory over Hull.
