SEAN Dyche will not let anyone get carried away with Burnley’s promising league position.

Back-to-back 3-0 victories, the latest coming at Watford on Saturday, have lifted the Clarets up to seventh in the Premier League table.

That was the end result when Dyche’s side reached the Europa League back in 2018 with the current campaign a marked improvement on the league struggles that came with their European adventure last season.

It is tightly packed in the top flight however, Burnley a point beyond Wolves in fifth but just three above Newcastle down in 14th.

“We have been in this territory a couple of years ago but last year was a reminder of how difficult the Premier League is,” said Dyche.

“I don't get carried away with it and I don't think my players get carried away with it.

“But it is there to be enjoyed because it is tough in the Premier League.

“It is great for our fans who came down here but we have a lot of work to do. It is the story of a season. I said that last year when things weren't going so well and we managed to finish strongly and I am still saying it now because I am not naive enough to think being where we are now is a given.

“It doesn't work like that, I wish it did. It would be handy if they blew the whistle now! I would take it.”

The mood was especially jubilant leaving Vicarage Road on Saturday given it was a first away win of the season and one that ultimately looked convincing thanks to second-half goals from Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes and James Tarkowski.

“The away record is important for different reasons in the Premier League,” said Dyche, who has seen his side start the season impressively at Turf Moor.

“If you look statistically, apart from the superpowers, it is very rare for teams to have a better away record than at home in the Premier League.

“So we know the home form is important but if you can nick wins and points away from home over a season it does stack up.

“It helps you to be relatively successful, for us success is building on last season which we have done so far with points on the board but we have to continue to do it.”
