BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche was disappointed to see his side fall flat in the FA Cup after the highs of their wins over Leicester and Manchester United.

Norwich prevailed 2-1 to reach round five on a day where the Clarets didn’t come close to hitting top gear.

The game turned on two goals in four second-half minutes, Grant Hanley and Josip Drmic on target for the visitors.

Erik Pieters did pull a goal back for the Clarets but Dyche’s side never looked like forcing a replay.

"It was a strange game, these early rounds can be peculiar in that the crowds are not there, it's a weird sort of feel,” the Burnley boss said.

"The first half was sort of end to end, bit of a ding dong, they had chances, we had chances, not a lot in the performances.

"We hit the bar, Jay Rodriguez has a golden chance, but they had a couple as well, so at half-time there was nothing in it.

"Second half we kept at it, we huffed and puffed, played but couldn't find the quality we needed to open the final moments, and that's what we continually look at here.

"And we let two soft goals in, so it's difficult to win games if you let goals in like that.”

Dyche had made five changes from the win over United with his Norwich counterpart Daniel Farke making seven, the Canaries bottom of the Premier League table and scrapping for survival after promotion.

“They were good changes, they are good players, players that need football but good players,” Dyche said.

"Two of the shining lights, Tarky (James Tarkowski) and Westy (Ashley Westwood) were by far the two best players on the pitch, and they've played all the games recently, full of energy and the desire to try and win a game for us, and they tried everything they could.

"So a soft disappointment, we've had a very important week, but I thought we'd be strong today and deliver a performance.

"I was really confident with the way the week has gone and the feel in the camp that we'd win today.”
