BURNLEY manager Sean Dyche is pleased that his side have their destiny in their own hands as they prepare for the last stretch of Premier League games in the battle for survival.

The Clarets will line up against FA Cup semi-finalists Wolves at Turf Moor tomorrow in what will be Dyche's 300th game in charge at the club.

Dyche's men are on a disappointing four-match losing spell which has left them just two points above the Premier League danger zone, the Burnley boss insisted he would have taken this position at the turn of the year.

"It gets to a point, which is now, where it's still right in our grasp, where it wasn't at Christmas," said Dyche.

"I think we've come a long way since that build-up to Christmas.

"It's easy to forget we only had 12 points at 19 games. We've now got 30, so that's a pretty healthy return. Now, we've got to continue to build on that.

"Since Christmas the actual form has been good. The last run has been tough, obviously.

"But if you mix that altogether, you'd certainly take the return in points.

"But we've got to get more. That's just what it tells you on the league table."

Dyche's men dragged themselves out of the bottom three with a club record breaking eight-match unbeaten streak after the 5-1 humbling on Boxing Day to Everton.

That run ended with a defeat at Newcastle's St James' Park at the end of last month, this then kicked off a run of four straight losses which continued with a 2-1 loss at home to Leicester City before the international break.

Cardiff City – who currently occupy the final place in the relegation zone – have narrowed the gap to just two points, but still have to come to Turf Moor during a run-in which could still see several sides battling hard for points.

"Whatever way you look at it, it's still definitely revolves around us," added Dyche, whose side has four of their final seven games at Turf Moor.

"I have made the players aware of that – not that I need to.

"They are acutely aware of that and they know the script. It's still about us delivering performances – whoever we play."

The Burnley boss highlighted how the whole season has been a challenge, not just certain moments.

"I think the whole season has been a challenge," added Dyche, who will take charge of his 300th Burnley game on Saturday,

"I knew it would be and I expressed that to the board before the season started."
