BURNLEY manager Sean Dyche intends to use the international break to re-group with his players in their pursuit of Premier League safety.

The Clarets are now in to a two week break from league matches following a run of four successive defeats after Saturday's 90th minute loss to Leicester.

Dyche's side are now only two points clear of the relegation places - having also played a game more that 18th placed Cardiff.

The Clarets boss is preparing for the vital last seven games, starting at Turf Moor against FA Cup semi-finalists Wolves.

"It's time to reflect and make sense of it, there's got to be work and there has to be a rest for the players as well," said Dyche.

"The thought on that is to make sure they clear their minds and get ready to go again, because that's the nature of the Premier League, and get ready for the next challenges that are to come.

"There's a lot of football to be played and we have to get back to the feel of what we do. We're not a million miles away.

"We're in a shape we possibly couldn't have been in at Christmas, so that's the bigger picture.

"But we've got more work to do. That's nailing it down. We've got more to do."
