SEAN Dyche hailed a 'fantastic' win for his side against Southampton as he again brushed off links with the vacant Everton job.

The Clarets chief steered his side to a second successive 1-0 win in the Premier League and they head into the international break with 19 points from 11 games, and just two defeats.

Whether Dyche is still in charge when league action resumes remains to be seen, with Everton set to make a decision over a new boss during the next two weeks.

But for now Dyche said his focus remains on Burnley and he was delighted with the 1-0 win at St Mary's, secured thanks to Sam Vokes' late winner.

"To be honest, the story's come around and it's out of my hands. It's a story that's away from me, although it's about me at the moment," the Turf boss said.

"I just keep getting on with my business, as I have been doing for five years.

"I've had numerous times when I've been linked with situations and I just continue to see it clearly and that is to work hard at what I do.

"I continue to do that and the group that I work with quite obviously today have done that again, so the rest of it is noise that's beyond me.

"There's not a story there. My story is the Burnley story; five years here, another win today, which is a fantastic win, a clean sheet, Southampton away, a place that's been historically very, very tough for us to come and get results - both me as a manager and the club - and we've won 1-0, that's the story."

Dyche made two key changes around the hour mark to change the course of the game, with Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes coming on for Chris Wood and Jeff Hendrick.

The substitutions got Burnley back on the front foot and it was Southampton fan Vokes who popped up to score the winner.

"When you try and plan a game out as you hope it will go then that is as close as we've been to making it work in our favour," he said.

"Our shape was very good in the first half against a very good, technical side.

"You had to be diligent with all the details and defensive responsibilities. We looked to counter and we didn't do it as well today. The depth of the squad and belief was evident.

"The two lads coming on up front in Barnesy and Vokes changed the game. They were terrific in turning the game."
