BURNLEY will return to Premier League action on Sunday looking to rediscover a goalscoring touch.

The Clarets have scored just once in their first two league games this season and that came from a corner as James Tarkowski headed in against Watford.

They created plenty of chances in the opening weekend draw at Southampton but couldn't find the finishing touch, while Burnley were the better side in the first half against the Hornets but couldn't get in front and they were made to pay in a poor second half performance.

While the Clarets are usually strong defensively - the aberration against Watford aside - they have usually struggled to find that ruthless edge in the final third, something they will look to do when they travel to Fulham on Sunday (4pm).

In finishing seventh last year they scored just 36 goals in 38 games and Dyche admits they remain the unfinished article in attacking areas.

"We’re a work in progress in the top third. The top third of the pitch is always the hardest, particularly in the Premier League," the Clarets chief said.

"When you think that people are now buying goalkeepers for £70million that’s normally for a reason, because they’re very good at what they do.

"Centre halves in the £50million, £60million area. It’s very difficult in the top third of the pitch to be clinical, precise, to be calm. It’s a continued work in progress for us."

The addition of Mateh Vydra from Derby County for £11million may help with that, while Dyche will hope to get a full season out of Chris Wood, who could start just 20 Premier League games last season after his £15million move from Leeds United due to injury.

But Dyche can see plenty of positive signs further back and more often than not his side are strong enough defensively to stay in games.

"The rest of the pitch I think we’re very good at," he said. "We’re very organised, we know how to work from our shape, we don’t get flummoxed.

"We stick to what we’re good at and we make sure we deliver it. And we’ve still got moments of quality that can win a match."
