BOSS Sean Dyche insists Burnley’s focus remains on their own performances ahead of Saturday’s crunch trip to Brighton.

The Clarets are unbeaten in six Premier League games but remain just one place and two points outside the bottom three heading into the Amex Stadium clash.

The Seagulls start the day 13th, five points clear of third bottom Cardiff City and three above Dyche’s men.

Chris Hughton’s side are without a win in five top flight games and a win for Burnley would drag them firmly into a relegation scrap.

With Huddersfield Town adrift at the bottom and Fulham seven points from safety, the final relegation spot appears to be one from Cardiff, Burnley, Southampton, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Brighton.

And with the Clarets facing three of those sides in their next four games, with a trip to St James’ Park and a visit from the Eagles coming up in the next month, the Brighton match is a chance to make a statement.

But, when asked on how he sees the relegation battle, Dyche is keeping the focus on his side, rather than the fortunes of others.

“I just see it that we get on with what we are doing, that has always been the clarity I have worked under,” said Dyche.

“I look (at the table) but I am not staring at it everyday because I know we can take care of ourselves and that is what we have to do.

“We have to keep performing at a high level, we have to stay consistent because if we don’t then we know from earlier in the season that it doesn’t pay you back.

“But our levels are rising all the time now I think.”

The Clarets have drawn their last three matches but could easily have taken maximum points from all three fixtures.

Chris Wood saw a last minute strike at Watford incorrectly ruled out for offside while Victor Lindelof was also offside when he bundled home a last minute equaliser for Manchester United in a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

And Ashley Barnes was denied a certain penalty by referee Anthony Taylor in the 1-1 draw with Southampton last time out, although the Clarets striker did level from the spot in stoppage time to secure a point.

Dyche felt it could have been all three and was left to reflect on what might have been.

“I am slightly aggrieved because I know we could have won that,” said the Turf boss of the draw with the Saints. “Credit to them they have stayed resolute and defended and done all the things you needed to do.

“But I think that was a very good performance from us where we just kept knocking and knocking and knocking.

“You still worry that you are not going to get that chance but I thought we deserved it and I thought we deserved what we got at Old Trafford, despite them having play and chances because that happens when you play at Old Trafford.

“I am little bit aggrieved we didn’t get the win at Watford because it was clearly shown to be onside.

“Even if you don’t take the Man U one (where Lindelof was offside) that is four extra points and that can be massive.

“But, on the other end, we stay unbeaten and we gain another point and strengthen our mentality because that was another strong performance mentally.”
