SEAN Dyche expects Burnley's home form to once again play a key role in the Clarets bid for Premier League survival this season.

After a stunning opening day win on the road at champions Chelsea Dyche's side return to familiar territory tomorrow as they welcome West Brom to Turf Moor.

Burnley's 10 home wins last season was the catalyst for their first top flight survival in over four decades, and Dyche is targeting another productive year at Turf Moor.

"We enjoyed our home form last season, I think our fans did, and we want to take on the challenge again because statistically it's difficult away from home," the Clarets chief said.

"We've got that big three on the board already but it is statistically difficult. Our home form we think, as most people do, may play a strong part, like it did last season. We've got to make sure we're ready to perform."

Burnley drew 2-2 at home to West Brom back in May and Dyche expects another tough test from the Baggies, even if he has a good idea of what to expect from Tony Pulis' side.

"Tony knows the league well, he's mostly got a group of players who are very experienced and he knows how he wants them to perform," he said.

"They very rarely change for anyone, give up the ball, they look to counter when they can, they play hard at set pieces but they're a strong unit and they've shown that over the years, certainly under Tony they have."

Confidence is high in the Clarets camp after their stunning success at Stamford Bridge, but while Dyche was happy for his players to enjoy the taste of success he is keen to keep them grounded as well.

"There's a good mood mostly anyway," Dyche said of the spirit at the training ground this week.

"Like every manager, you don't want to get too high with highs and low with lows. The challenges of football come thick and fast.

"I think finding a balanced view of everything we come across and working to the levels we think is required is an important thing over the course of season.

"Of course we enjoyed the win, the fans would have but come Monday you're ready to work again and that's what we've done this week - getting the game out of system very quickly and moving forwards."

Burnley have no new injury concerns after the win at Chelsea, and Dyche said long-term absentee Dean Marney is continuing to make good progress from the cruciate knee ligament injury he suffered at Arsenal back in January.

"Dean Marney's doing very well. Not close yet but he's making a really good recovery from knee. Other than that we're clear," Dyche said.
