SEAN Dyche believes Burnley can build on the 0-0 draw at West Brom which earned the Clarets their first point of the season.

Burnley went in to the clash bottom of the Premier League having lost their opening three games but the result saw the Clarets move above both Fulham and Sheffield United in to 18th place.

The result is a timely boost for Burnley ahead of next Monday's clash with Spurs at Turf Moor.

“A point on the board is important psychologically,” said Dyche who had seen his side beaten by Leicester City, Southampton and Newcastle United in their opening three encounters.

“We’ve had three out of four away games, even though it’s awkward times it’s still statistically difficult to win away games.

“In our first season back in the Premier League it took us until March. We’re better than that now but we get on with the challenge, that is what we do.

“We have to be careful with what we wish for and not over-demand because it’s an unforgiving league so there has to be a reality but we can build on that performance.

“We understand the challenges, they are not naive our players.”

Meanwhile, West Brom boss Slaven Bilic is concerned fans could be priced out of football after supporters had to shell out to watch the Baggies’ stalemate with Burnley.

Fans were forced to pay £14.95 to see the 0-0 draw at The Hawthorns - a result that ended the longest wait for a goalless draw from the start of a campaign in the Premier League’s history, coming in the 47th game.

Chris Wood should have won it for Burnley but hit the bar in the second half while Baggies new boy Karlan Grant - a £15million signing from Huddersfield - had a goal disallowed for offside as neither side found a breakthrough.

Games remain behind-closed-doors amid the coronavirus pandemic with fans now asked to pay for those not selected for regular TV coverage.

Bilic said: “It’s not my money it’s their money. Football should not be free, but affordable, and I always used to say football is not polo or golf, it’s the sport for masses, a working-class sport and it should be affordable to everybody.”

He continued: “It was a fair result, it’s not what we were looking for and our line-up and philosophy showed that.

“I told the guys to take this positively because I saw a big team effort, really good basics and organisation and the guys gave me everything.

“(Sam) Johnstone made a couple of great saves, that is why we got him. Those saves give him and the whole team confidence and the proof they are good enough.

“We were watching these guys on the TV last season and I can tell them they are good enough but if they don’t feel it, the points, wins or clean sheets – that’s the best way to believe it.”
