BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche hailed his side's ability to win ugly after the Clarets came from a goal down to win 2-1 against Fulham despite not managing a shot on target.

Own goals from Joey Byrom and Denis Odoi gave Burnley three vital Premier League points after Andre Schurrle had fired Claudio Ranieri's side into a second minute lead.

The Clarets were resolute as both sides found it difficult to create too many clear cut chances in driving rain and swirling wind at Turf Moor.

“I don’t think we performed as well as in the last two games, but you have to find a way to win," said Dyche.

“Generally our performance was good, but in an attacking front, we’ve been really good the last two games (against West Ham and Huddersfield) and thoroughly deserved the goals we’ve got. Today we’ve had to find a different way to win, but we’ve done that many times, and that is part of our make up, we have to do that.

“It is a pleasing thing, to win the games that are really tight.

“I’ve spoken many items about the margins, and we are good at getting those games won or something from them."

Fulham boss Ranieri felt his side merited a share of the spoils but Dyche felt his side were comfortable defending their advantage int he second half, one brilliant James Tarkowski block to deny sub Luciano Vietto aside.

“I can understand his (Claudio's) frustration, but apart from Tarky’s fantastic block on the line, I don’t think they asked that many questions," said Dyche.

“General play in the second half they did very well, they are a side with some real quality and after getting such a good start, the mentality of our players to come back and deliver a performance that can win was fantastic.

“First half we deserved it, I thought we were on top. I was really pleased with the calmness - they started well, not just the goal, the first 10/15 minutes, we stayed calm and grew into the game.

“We get a break with you second own goal, but the first, I hope they give that to Jeff (Hendrick) because I think it is going in.

“The second one is a really good move, all the way down the pitch.

“Jeff turns and crosses to Barnesy and their lad has to try and defend it and it goes in.

“Second half, credit to Fulham, they came out with that freedom, they haven’t won away all season, what’s the worst that can happen?

“They opened up the pitch, way more expansive and caused us problems, but we’ve had to defend it out and do what we’ve had to do.

“Tarky with a fantastic block, which is another step towards what we are good at, all the detail, all the bits early season we weren’t getting right."

Dyche revealed that Johann Berg Gudmundsson should be fit for next weekend's trip to Watford.

"He was very close, I would expect him to have a good few days until next weekend," the Clarets chief said of the winger.
