Burnley manager Sean Dyche had praise for his players and the club’s supporters after they defeated Hull City 1-0 on Saturday to earn a first Premier League win of the season at the 11th attempt, reports their official
Having gone into the game three points adrift at the bottom of the table, Burnley made a strong start to the game as Danny Ings guided a shot just wide, and limited Hull to few opportunities at the other end.
Indeed, the Clarets were the better side throughout, and the decisive goal came shortly after half time as Ashley Barnes powered a header past Steve Harper following a pinpoint cross from Kieran Trippier. The visitors were reduced to 10 men late on as Curtis Davies went off injured, and although they put on late pressure, Turf Moor was able to celebrate a vital three points.
Ecstatic with the performance and the atmosphere, Dyche said: “It’s great for everyone. We believe and I want the fans to believe and I think they do. The thing they certainly believe is that we have a manager, a staff and a playing squad who will give them everything.
“I think they know that, and adding to that is that bit of quality to win a match – and we showed that today. If you were honest, in that first half I think we were absolutely excellent, against a Premier League team. It would have been a lot more comfortable in the end than it turned out.”
