BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche admits his side are low on confidence following their 3-1 defeat at Leeds United.

Jack Harrison, Stuart Dallas and Dan James were on target for the Whites, while Maxwel Cornet scored his sixth goal of the campaign with a stunning free-kick.

Dyche’s men remain in the Premier League drop zone, having won just one league match this season.

“I spoke to the players about that weird feeling that creeps in, usually when results are not going your way and everyone is looking to someone else to do the next thing,” said the Burnley boss.

“When we talk about confidence and winning and results, you find when you’re in a good moment, the game becomes fluid, both defensively and in attack.

“At the minute it’s like we’re waiting for someone to do their job and if it goes wrong we’re not active, we’re not anticipating.”

Dyche, whose side are two points from safety but with a game in hand on Watford, was complimentary in his assessment of Leeds.

He added: “I don’t want to discredit Leeds. They played forward, they worked hard.

“Leeds try and play, but a lot of it was played straight, getting forward and running hard, playing that physical game with an edge to it.

“Their first goal came from that. It came from a clearance and their lad (Harrison) runs it down like his life depended on it.

“That’s sometimes the edge that it takes and we weren’t there for that, that kind of feel, for the whole game.”

The Clarets are back in action on Saturday, January 8 when they host Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup third round (KO 12:30pm).
