SEAN Dyche believes the fact Kasper Schmeichel was man of the match tells the story of Burnley’s 1-1 draw with Leicester.

The Dane produced several fine saves to keep the Clarets at bay as Dyche’s men rebounded well from their 4-0 defeat at Tottenham last time out.

Schmeichel was beaten after four minutes when Matej Vydra intercepted a loose Hamza Choudhury pass and lashed into the net as the Czech ended a goal drought in the league lasting more than a year and 1,212 minutes on the field.

After Kelechi Iheanacho had equalised with a fantastic volley, Schmeichel came to the fore as he kept out headed efforts from James Tarkowski and Chris Wood, the latter denied by the shot-stopper’s fingertips.

Ashley Westwood and Youri Tielemans also both hit the woodwork as the sides settled for a point apiece.

“Sometimes you get a bit of noise about games like the ones on Sunday (at Spurs), you forget to credit the opposition,” said Dyche.

“We were off and they were clinical, but we parked that very quickly.

“We get a point, which is pleasing. We may have taken more but the reaction and the performance was super pleasing.

“You don’t want their keeper to be man of the match but it does imply you’ve been an attacking force and I thought we were, especially in the second half.

“We went 1-0 up and we looked just a little bit hesitant, almost waiting for the game. I think in the second half, we really took it on with a mentality to go and win the game. I was really pleased with that and the performance.”
