Dyche happy with Burnley’s performance despite offside call

Sean Dyche says Burnley are back on the right track

Burnley managed to earn a point against Watford away at Vicarage Road and manager Sean Dyche was pleased with his team’s performance even though Chris Wood had a goal ruled out for offside in the dying stages of the game.

The replays showed that Wood was level with the Watford backline when he struck in injury time but the Clarets were thankful to goalkeeper Tom Heaton for keeping them alive with a number of key saves.

Burnley missed the chance to register their fourth straight Premier League win but the Clarets are still three points clear of the relegation zone.

And Sean Dyche believes that his team are back on the right track after keeping their third clean sheet of the season.

“I think most people will consider that goal to be onside and I thought it was at the time,” Dyche told a news conference.

“You can often tell by how teams react with their body language, and that’s how it felt. Seeing it again after the game it looks onside but we know we have found it tough to get big decisions this year – and beyond.

“I think we’re something like 65 Premier League games without a penalty now, which is a statistical anomaly, but I don’t want to cry it in because we were really good today.

“In the end, a big call has cost us, but I thought the officials did very well today other than that and from our point of view, it was a very, very strong performance.

“It’s not easy coming down here anyway and they started well, but I felt we grew into the game and once we did that I don’t think we really looked back.”
