Dyche insists more to come

Sean Dyche insists that Burnley's survival bid is far from over and says there is more to come from his side this season.

The Clarets are unbeaten in the league this year, taking 15 points from their last seven games.

However, despite that run they are still only three points clear of the relegation zone so Dyche is far from complacent.

After the run we have confirmed we are in a better place, although there is still work to be done.

He says though that while he and the squad have been put under scrutiny this campaign, he is pleased with how they have reacted.

At a press conference ahead of a weekend match with Tottenham at Turf Moor, Dyche said: "We've been heavily questioned this season, myself and the team. To come out of that with a good run of performances and results is very pleasing.

"The players are certainly grounded enough to know there is more to come and we have got to continue in that vein."

Burnley are 5/1 to win on Saturday with Spurs 3/5 and the draw 16/5.

Dyche said that Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are fit to face Mauricio Pochettino's side though the squad will still be missing Steven Defour.

Having been knocked out of the FA Cup at the fourth round stage, the Clarets had no game last weekend and Dyche was appreciative of the break, using the opportunity to take the squad away.

"With an international break you lose a few [players] and you can't take the whole group but we took everyone with us, just for four days. We just wanted to lock in all the good work that is going on at the moment," he added.

"After the run we have confirmed we are in a better place, although there is still work to be done."

Burnley are 200/1 to finish in the top half of the Premier League while Spurs, five points off the top, are 1000/1 to win the title.
