SEAN Dyche is looking for Burnley to turn performances in to wins and has backed his side to come through their lean patch.

The Clarets impressed in their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United where two late goals denied them a share of the spoils.

While the third successive loss leaves Burnley one place and six points above the drop zone, Dyche insists his "tough-minded" side will do enough to remain in the Premier League.

“I’ve never lacked confidence or belief in what we do here, that’s for sure,” said Dyche.

“It’s about turning performances into wins and tidying up some of the details. Not so much (against United), but in the other games.

“The way we went about it is another strong sign of us being tough-minded and you need that over a Premier League season.

“It’s very difficult to expect to not have some spells in the Premier League where things go against you, we’ve been very good at coming out of those spells with very good performances.

“We’ll have to do that again.”

After Mason Greenwood put United ahead, James Tarkowski headed home a deserved equaliser soon after. It had looked like Burnley might extend their unbeaten record at Old Trafford to five games but a second from Greenwood late on and Edinson Cavani’s stoppage-time effort sealed the win.

Dyche added: “Overall I was pleased. At 1-1, I think we’re seeing the game out well and we might have a chance of nicking one because it looked like that type of game. But they get one out the blue.

“You’re scratching your head at that stage because I thought we were handling the game very well.

“You don’t want to cry too much, over the season you need your scratches of luck. The mentality in training is very good, the performance was very good, we’ve got to keep showing that in these remaining games.”
