Burnley manager Sean Dyche has claimed that his side have not been gaining the recognition they deserve after they saw off Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, Goal.com
Scott Arfield gave the Clarets the lead with a fine solo effort as he beat several visiting defenders before curling a shot inside the far post past a stranded Robert Green. Their former striker Charlie Austin then won and converted a penalty to bring QPR level, but Danny Ings secured a crucial 2-1 victory for Burnley with a nonchalant low shot.
That result was enough to move out of the bottom three at the expense of their opponents, and it continued their run of four games without defeat in all competitions. After the game, Dyche hailed his side, but believes they do not get enough recognition for their quality as opposed to their fighting spirit and determination.
“A lot is made about the physical side of the team and desire to give performances,” he said. “But we do have some quality as well, it doesn’t always get a mention. I understand that because some of the players are not familiar to people in this league.
“Scott Arfield’s goal is absolutely tremendous. If that’s Alexis Sanchez I think it gets shown a thousand times over the weekend – we might get 50. There is quality there, it has to be enhanced, but it’s a good marker. The team are developing, you can see that, we’re becoming more clinical and you can see that.”
