Dyche: Burnley focus remains survival

Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists his target remains Premier League survival, despite sitting comfortably clear of the relegation zone.

The Clarets are nine points above the drop zone after claiming only their second point on the road on Saturday against Hull City.

The home form is what has propelled Dyche's team up the standings, as they have claimed 29 points at Turf Moor and now sit in 11th.

When asked whether their success changes their targets for the season, Dyche told the press: "Not mine. Mine stays steadfast to what I believe is correct for the group. Everyone else can have their version. My group knows what I think and how I operate and that's the key thing for me.

"We've stuck to a mantra ever since I've been at the club. To build something, you can only do it one piece at a time.

"Seasons get built one game at a time. It's something we've focused on for a long time now.

"We move forward, we park it, as we did with last week's game. A lot of noise was made about that. It went away.

"You saw on Saturday a clarity in the performance, the will and demand. We can still add to our quality, particularly away from home."
