Sean Dyche believes Burnley are close to rediscovering their best form despite falling to another defeat on Sunday. The Clarets’ results so far this campaign have been disappointing after they over-achieved last season with a seventh-place finish in the Premier League.
Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Molineux flattered Dyche’s side, who were indebted to goalkeeper Joe Hart for keeping the scoreline respectable as Wolves had 30 shots on goal during the game.
Burnley have lost their last four Premier League games – the last time that happened the Clarets were relegated from the top flight, finishing bottom of the table in 2015.
But Dyche is refusing to panic just yet and insists they aren’t far off rediscovering the kind of form that saw them spring surprises last term.
“There’s work to be done on the training ground but a lot of it just loosening slightly,” said Dyche.
“It’s roughly the same group that got us to seventh in the Premier League last year, we’re not a million miles away but the margins are so fine for us.
“The biggest thing of all is to free the focus of the players. When the players are playing with confidence everything flows a bit easier but to bring that flow back you have to be strong physically and mentally. We aren’t far off.”
