WHATEVER happens over the Clarets final three games of the season one significant Premier League milestone is secure - Burnley will win more league games than they lose.

Sean Dyche's side have racked up 14 wins this term and just 10 defeats and after the draw at Stoke City they can now only lose a possible 13.

The Turf boss insists he's 'very proud' of that record, even if Burnley are targeting more wins from their final three outings, starting with Saturday's home clash with Brighton.

The record is another sign of the improvement on last season when the Clarets won 11 times but suffered 20 defeats, double the tally they currently sit on.

“That in itself is a marker, it’s very difficult," Dyche said of the win ratio.

"We worked hard as a group and a collective in order to get that. That has to continue.

"I’m very proud of that. It’s very difficult to be a young British manager in the Premier League and to stay there and keep doing what we’re doing.

"It’s not just the team, it’s me as well.

"But we know we have to continue to work for everything as we did again."

Dyche will take charge of his 112th Burnley game in the Premier League on Saturday against the Seagulls as the Clarets close in on a European place.

Even if Leicester City take maximum points from their four remaining games Burnley need just four points to guarantee a top seven finish a spot in the Europa League.

While their recent run of form has made life difficult for the Foxes to keep up, Dyche insists the focus always remains on his own side.

“We’ve not thought about that all season, who’s doing what, it’s about us, that remains the focus," he said.

“It was at the beginning of the season when the first whistle goes, and it still is now.

“It’s good if other people get results that affect things, and I’m sure people will have been looking at this game wondering which way it would go, but overall you have to rely on yourselves, your own team and what you can do.

“We’ve taken care of ourselves this season and continue to do so."
