Burnley boss Dyche scoffs at 'mini slump' suggestions as Clarets reclaim top spot
7:09pm Saturday 7th December 2013 in Sport
BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche said his side were deserving of the win which took them back to the Championship summit.
The Clarets were knocked off top spot last weekend following only their second league defeat of the season, at Huddersfield Town.
But Michael Kightly's winner put Burnley back in first place, leading the way over QPR on goal difference following their goalless draw at home to Blackburn Rovers, while previous leaders Leicester suffered a 3-1 defeat at Brighton.
It was Burnley's first win in six league games, and Dyche said: "People have been saying we are on a mini slump.
"Going from first to third back to first is a pretty impressive mini slump and certainly the best I've been on!
"You don't get everything your own way in this league, but in most of the game's we've drawn we've been pretty dominant. We just had one blip at Huddersfield when we didn't play well.
"We know when we play well we can beat teams, but it's the results in games when you are not at your best that are important over a Championship season.
"Today we found a way to win and that's an important attribute to have."
