SEAN Dyche hailed Burnley's 'amazing' fans after the goalless draw with Southampton.

The Clarets opened their Premier League season with a point at St Mary's less than 72 hours after their Europa League third qualifying round tie with Istanbul Basaksehir in Turkey.

Dyche's side were roared on by around 600 fans in Istanbul and then plenty more on the south coast as the domestic action returned.

"What we sometimes forget is the fan side of football, amazing," the Burnley boss said.

"There is probably a more earthy connection with the Burnley fans, team and the club because of the nature of it, but, to have 600 out there and then a certain number down here, fantastic.

“The away fans have been brilliant since I’ve been here. I always used to go and watch my local team, Kettering Town, but when you’re travelling away, that’s a whole different ball game, it’s expensive, time consuming, and takes total commitment, so admirable for sure."
