Burnley manager Sean Dyche admits he is happy the way his side encountered Newcastle United but insists they need to dig deeper to grind out positive results.
Dyche’s men crashed to their fourth defeat in the last six matches and are now sitting dangerously close to the relegation zone. Newcastle maintained their revival fight as they got the better of the Clarets to climb up to the 13th place.
Following their disappointing Europa League campaign where they failed to progress to the main round, it could have had a severe impact on their Premier League plans.
On the back of a brilliant last season Dyche has failed to inspire his side properly and as a result, they are currently languishing in the 17th place.
Dyche said, “A lot of the aspects of the performance I was actually pleased of, so it’s a frustrating one. But once you give two goals away, it’s difficult in the Premier League.
“Some good stuff, stuff to be pleased of, mentality excellent, but obviously very frustrated with the result of course.
“We have to earn the right, nobody gives you anything in football, we know that, performance levels aside.
“At the moment I think the team are beginning to look like what we can be, but we have to get the right side of the margins because it is tight for teams like us. Landing on those right sides is so, so important.”
