New Burnley boss Dyche celebrates "fantastic start"
8:39pm Saturday 3rd November 2012 in Sport
SEAN Dyche has urged Burnley to keep up the good work, after getting off to a winning start.
The new Clarets boss celebrated a 2-0 win over Wolves in his first game after taking the Turf Moor reins.
Goals from Martin Paterson and top scorer Charlie Austin made it a day to remember against the early promotion favourites.
But Dyche insisted the players had to at least match that level of performance when Leeds United come to town on Tuesday.
“It was a fantastic start in the transition of the club. A new manager walks in and to get off to a good start for myself, the staff, the players and of course the fans,” said the former Watford boss.
“I spoke about bringing a one-club mentality and that's a great way to start when a big club like Wolves comes to town and you get a nice clean sheet and a win.
“The players have been very honest. They know there's work to be done, and there's still plenty of work to be done.
“It was more a case of re-aligning them. They're good people and they're honest about what they can do and some of the things they haven't been doing.
“We did show the qualities that arguably I'm told haven't been as prevalent this season, but the lads know that and they dug in during the second half and got a great clean sheet.”
Of the warm reception he received from the home fans ahead of kick-off, Dyche added: “The manager is the front of the club – it's not about me, it's the club.
“The quicker we can get the join between the realities of what's going on here and the fans playing their part in that, that's marvellous.
“Wins accelerate that, so we'll be looking for another one on Tuesday.”
