BURNLEY are desperate to correct their cup shortcomings, according to Clarets boss Sean Dyche.

It was another disappointing knockout night for Dyche's side as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat to League One side Burton Albion, despite creating plenty of chances at the Pirelli Stadium.

The Clarets have won just seven League Cup and FA Cup fixtures in Dyche's reign now, three of which came in his first season in charge in a run to the fourth round of this competition.

Dyche admitted his team were aware of their disappointing record in the cups and were keen to correct it, but he was frustrated to again see his side fail to take the chances they created at the Pirelli Stadium.

"It's something that we wanted to correct. We're aware that in the cup competitions we haven't done as well," Dyche said.

"It's probably one of the only things we have left to do well in during my time at Burnley. We felt that we put out a side tonight that was capable and I felt for large parts they showed that they were capable but you've got to score goals, it's as simple as that.

"People have to take responsibility for that. On Saturday we took all our chances, we were very clinical, so it's there but we've got to do it more often than what we're doing it at the moment.

"We created enough to win a game tonight but didn't and that's happened too many times this season already."

Kevin Long had headed Burnley in front five minutes before the break and the Clarets looked to be in control early in the second, before goals from Liam Boyce and Jamie Allen turned the game on its head.

"You need that ability to stay switched on in a game like this because it doesn't have the same feeling as a Premier League game," Dyche said.

"Part of being big players is to perform regardless. We all know the story of the cup, it's a strange phenomenon. It's a strange mentality from the players when they don't quite find that same feeling as they do for a Premier League game. That happens to sides that are bigger than us as well.

"We prepared right, the players were in good form, there was a good feeling. We made changes but they're good players.

"I don't want to be too critical in the sense of the performance because if you took the goals out of it then you'd think we were a good side on that showing with real quality at times. But you've got to add goals to it because that's the name of the game."
