Burnley boss Sean Dyche praised his side’s resolve after their fine come-from-behind win against Aston Villa. The Clarets were 1-0 and 2-1 down at Turf Moor but rallied with Chris Wood sealing a memorable 3-2 victory 11 minutes from time. Ollie Watkins’ 10th goal of the season put Villa ahead inside the first quarter of an hour as the visitors dominated the first period.
Sean Dyche said “Villa were excellent in the first half, by far the better team. They looked more confident with the ball, had a good shape without the ball, we didn’t really ask too many questions, they did. But our diligence saw us through that half well. It was a soft goal from our point of view, but then there were blocks by our centre-halves, Popey made a couple of big saves and we stayed in it. I said to the players at half-time, ‘I don’t think they can be as strong in the second half and we can do miles better’. There was no shouting or screaming, it was just pointing out what I felt was the obvious. The second half was a completely different feel. The mentality to see the game through and do what you need to do to win a game, we’ve never been short of that, I don’t feel.”
