SEAN Dyche felt Burnley deserved all three points from their trip to Huddersfield after hailing a 'dominant' performance.

The Clarets had to settle for a goalless draw at the John Smith's Stadium which extends their run on the road to just two defeats in 11 this season.

But the Clarets missed enough chances to win the game and were also denied a clear penalty when Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl brought down Jeff Hendrick on the hour mark.

“It’s very good to get a point away from home, and we have in the last three away games now," Dyche said.

"We know from last season it’s very tough in the Premier League, and that’s 17 points now, which I’m very pleased with.

“We deserved all three though, we were very dominant first half and dominant in spells in the second half.

“Chance-wise first half we were very good, the obvious penalty that wasn’t given, but overall, it was a very thorough performance that warranted more than we got.

“It’s a case if we didn’t take our chances, but they are fine lines, Steven Defour’s goes past the post by a margin, Johann’s, Scotty’s deft header, Barnesy had a chance, the keeper makes a good save from Nahki Wells, and the obvious debate point on the penalty.

“That’s good on the road. It’s difficult anyway to create good chances, but I was really pleased with the performance."

The major talking point came when Hendrick when round Lossl inside the six-yard box before being tripped by the goalkeeper, and Dyche was disappointed not to get the decision.

“The only thing I’ll comment on, and everyone will see it and they’ll all know it’s a penalty, is that the thing we’re frustrated with is we know that a lot of penalties are given for people flailing their arms around everywhere, and he goes down naturally," he said.

“He’s not playing for it, he’s done good feet, goes round the keeper, keeper touches his trailing leg, but he doesn’t shoot his arms out from nowhere.

“I always go back to the playground, you fall as a kid, and land normally, and in the Premier League they don’t seem to, I don’t know where that comes from.

“I think he said to Jeff he thought he’d lost his footing. He did, because the keeper hit his foot.

“It’s a cut and dried one, the referee did a good job today, but just not on that incident."

The point in Yorkshire extended Burnley's advantage over Leicester City and Everton in eighth and ninth to seven points, but Dyche was particularly delighted with the continuation of the away form.

“The main thing we’ve been pleased with is going away in the Premier League is tough, and we’ve come away with a stretched squad with three points from four games, three away and a tough one at home," he said.

“Over the season, we’ve got a really healthy return and you can see why with the team playing like that.

“That’s with a team that’s a bit stretched, but that’s the value of the squad."
