After Burnley surrendered a two-goal lead for the second time in as many home games, manager Sean Dyche believes his players’ honesty saw contentious decisions given against them, reports Sky Sports.
Burnley were 2-0 up against West Brom leading into the break, but conceded on the cusp of half-time, before a controversial equaliser saw their win reduced to a draw.
Replays showed that Brown Ideye – who scored the equaliser – pushed a defender out of his way before heading home the decisive leveller, and manager Sean Dyche feels his side are being too honest not to respond and react, which is leading to them not getting the decisions their way.
“Our honesty really has hurt us today I think, because Dave Jones is as honest as a day’s long. He has an elbow in the back, doesn’t go down like many do and they get a free header. It’s a tough one in the respect of the two goals against but generally the performance was good,” he said.
