BURNLEY manager Sean Dyche believed his side did not have the quality on the day to break down the 10-man Leicester side.

Harry Maguire was dismissed after five minutes after bringing down Johann Berg Gudmundsson when he was racing through on goal.

The team of 10 men took the lead through a brilliant James Maddison free kick half way through the first half, but Burnley responded through Dwight McNeil.

Burnley were on top all throughout the second half, but failed to create chances. Wes Morgan won the game for the Foxes in the 90th minute with a header in to the corner of Tom Heaton's goal.

"I'm obviously very disappointed and it was a strange game in many ways," said Dyche.

"When a team goes down to 10 men so early it can feel strange unless you get a grip of the game straight away, and we didn't.

"In the second half we corrected things and had a lot of the play, but those quality moments that you need to win a game weren't close enough.

"You have to have that moment of truth and clarity."I will say it's not easy to break down a team that set up 4-4-1.

"But you have to find those moments and often we question the defensive side of our game, but our key players who are attack-minded have to find those moments. There is as big a responsibility there as there is defensively.

"In the second half there was more of an 11 v 10 feel, in terms of possession and getting into the right areas, but we couldn't find the real moments of quality, and that's probably the question we've had all season, finding them in the attacking third."

Burnley had two penalties turned down by referee Michael Oliver - Charlie Taylor went down in the box under a challenge and Wilfred Ndidi seemed to handle inside his own area. Nothing was given much.

Dyche added: "There was a big moment with the penalty at 1-1. I don't want to make it about that though.

"They are making defensive changes and working on the idea of counter attacking and we didn't give them a lot.

"But you are always fearful towards the end of a game and, in the end, it was unfortunate for us.

"We are bit unlucky that the cross balloons up off Charlie Taylor and loops up onto their lad's head, but I am a great believer in working hard and forcing your own luck."

Burnley have now lost four games on the spin - Dyche knows how important the final seven are.

"Since Christmas we've had eight big results and now had four go against us," he said.

"This is a tough one, but that's the reality of the Premier League.

"But we have seven more games and they are all very important games for all different reasons.

"The only way we can look after ourselves is to play well enough to look after ourselves."
