Dyche wants to create new glory at Turf Moor
SEAN Dyche says he is ready to make new history with Burnley.
Much was made of the Clarets’ Portman Road hoodoo before the game, with only one win from 19 attempts previously – the last back in 1970 when Frank Casper scored the winner.
But Scott Arfield re-wrote the history books by heading in Kieran Trippier’s cross for an 80th minute winner, “I think it was a terrific win.
“We knew it would be a tough game with a lot talk of their home form here in this early part of the season and also this bad scenario of never beating Ipswich (since 1970 away),” said Dyche.
“I’m really pleased with that because I speak to the group about these things. I spoke to them about the manager of the month scenario and how the stats can sometimes change that, and I spoke to them about the mentality here.
“What happened 10, 20, 30 years ago has nothing to do with (Saturday), I said it’s about getting ready for when the whistle blows and delivering a performance.
“On the whole, not for all of the game, but on the whole we did just about enough to edge it I think. But it was a close one.”
