SEAN Dyche's remarkable eye for detail has helped propel Burnley to the brink of Europe, according to full-back Matt Lowton.

The Clarets could take another big step towards a top-seven finish and probable Europa League qualification with a win over Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Burnley will be looking to make it five straight wins this weekend, having won four top flight matches in a row for the first time in 50 years with the 2-1 win at Watford.

Lowton believes Dyche's impact has been key to the club's stunning rise, as has chairman Mike Garlick's faith in sticking by him when Burnley were relegated from the Premier League in 2014/15.

"The chairman stuck with him and it's worked in the long run. I'm sure he had offers to go various places after the job that he's done but he's stuck here and nothing has changed," the former Aston Villa defender said.

"His demeanour day in day out is still - as you can imagine - pinpoint on everything. As I keep saying, it's working and everything is coming together and he's been key in that.

"He's on everything, every single day. Precise to every single point, there's no let-up. Even international breaks, when we don't have a game for 10 days, everything is as it needs to be. Training is bang-on and that's down to the manager."

It was Dyche's demeanour that helped the Clarets stay calm during their 11 game run without a win that was ended with the 2-1 success over Everton, according to Lowton.

"When we went on a barren spell, the manager pointed out we've drawn six with some good teams in there," he said. "He likes to make sense of things and try not to get bogged down with outside noise.

"The big thing was to step on again. Let's not rest on being safe and happy where we are. Since the meeting we have done."

As long as Southampton don't win the FA Cup seventh will be enough for the Europa League.

Lowton believes that is now a serious target for the club and that the squad is good enough and fit enough to cope with the increased demand.

"Europe is a very realistic target," he said. "For the club and the community, it makes people's weekends. The fans must be buzzing.

"We quite enjoy games coming thick and fast, I certainly do. The way we work, the lads are fit enough to handle it so there's no reason why we can't look forward to it."
