Burnley boss Sean Dyche pointed to the “soft goals” conceded by his side after seeing a lead slip in their 2-1 defeat against Newcastle at Turf Moor.

Matej Vydra’s first-half goal put the hosts in front before Allan Saint-Maximin came on just before the hour.

Within two minutes he teed up Jacob Murphy’s equaliser and five minutes later he ran from the halfway line to score what proved to be the winner himself.

The Clarets had 24 attempts at goal and Martin Dubravka was much busier than opposite number Bailey Peacock-Farrell, drafted in due to a shoulder injury for Nick Pope, but there was no reward.

“It was a very dominant performance and it’s disappointing that you don’t get anything from the game, but that’s football,” Dyche said.

“You’ve got to turn the key moments in your favour, which we sort of nearly did but didn’t quite see it off.

“The second goal was going to be important and we didn’t get that despite creating enough.

“They were two relatively soft goals. The first one we didn’t get the blocks in a place where we’d normally deal with it, and the second one we dropped too deep and allowed the lad to show a bit of talent but though I’m disappointed with the result I’m not disappointed in the performance.”

Burnley bossed possession throughout the match and, though rocked by Newcastle quick goals, had late chances to score an equaliser as Chris Wood and Vydra both had sights of goal.

“It sounds mad but but I don’t think those two players (Saint-Maximin and fellow sub Callum Wilson) affected the game apart from those two moments, but that’s why they’re the key moments,” Dyche added.

“It’s about creating the quality of chances. I don’t get carried away with the number, but we did enough to get a second today.”
