#PL Stories- Burnley boss #SeanDyche coy on injuries as Brighton build-up begins #BurnleyFC

Sean Dyche Burnley

Sean Dyche was reluctant to discuss Burnley’s latest spate of injuries but he insisted there is no disappointment at being unable to bolster his squad during the January transfer window. Full-back Charlie Taylor, midfielders Josh Brownhill and Robbie Brady and strikers Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes would have been in contention to start against Manchester City on Wednesday but the quintet were all sidelined. Dyche was coy about whether those players would be available to face Brighton on Saturday afternoon although he is hopeful none of them will be on the treatment table for a long spell.

Sean Dyche said: “I’m not a superstitious fella but whenever I talk about it we seem to get more injuries, so I’m trying to be open-minded about the use of how I talk about it. I don’t think it’s going to be long periods from now. The hardest thing at the moment is not throwing them back in and then re-injuring them. The game schedule has been tough but it’s tough for everyone. The demands of the Premier League are there for all to see, we’ve got to keep going as we will do and whatever comes our way we’ll put out a team that we believe can win.”

Delaware-based investment firm ALK Capital completed its takeover of Burnley on New Year’s Eve and despite plenty of speculation linking several players with a move to the club, nothing materialised.

Sean Dyche added: “There’s no disappointment, it’s happened to me many times. “It’s the reality of being at Burnley Football Club, I’m used to the idea that sometimes we can’t get players in or over the line. We’ll see what the future brings but that’s something I’m used to, so I’ve never been disappointed. I’m more focused on the players we’ve got, we’ve got some very good ones.”
