Sean Dyche felt Burnley got what they deserved despite needing a last-gasp equaliser and penalties to see off League One MK Dons in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Clarets missed a host of chances and trailed to Cameron Jerome’s 29th-minute header before Matej Vydra found the net in the final minute of injury time to make it 1-1.

With no goals in extra time, a shoot-out was needed and it was debutant keeper Will Norris who emerged the hero with two saves after Vydra had missed the opening kick.

Burnley put out a strong team despite missing four players either through coronavirus or isolation plus other injuries, and it marked a winning start for the new regime following the takeover by American investors ALK Capital.

Dyche said: “I thought the performance was decent. Trying to balance all that and win a game was a bit tricky, and it was made even trickier by a good MK Dons side that tried to take the game on.

“One of our big things is going to the final whistle and we did that again today. Really good finish by Vyds, real desire.

“The chances count is as high as I’ve seen for a while, and within that the chances on target, and within that the quality chances. You’ve got to take them. We’ve had so many good chances.

“I thought their keeper was excellent. It’s a strange one. You look at our side and say we should have won that game and we did in the end.”
