SEAN DYCHE admitted his Burnley side were “miles off” their best as they drew 0-0 with 10-man West Brom at Turf Moor. The Clarets boss put the below-par display down to his side’s gruelling schedule as Sam Allardyce’s strugglers spurned several gilt-edged chances, despite losing Semi Ajayi to a first-half red card.
Sean Dyche said: “I’m pleased with the outcome because I thought with the performance, we were absolutely miles off where we can be. I’ve asked a lot of these players and continue to have to ask a lot of them, so I’ve got to be careful what I ask of them. But we were nowhere near our performance level.”
The Clarets had strong claims for a penalty when Kyle Bartley appeared to handle in the area but Dean waved away Burnley’s pleas on an afternoon when the difficult conditions made life tough for both sides.
Sean Dyche added: “From a distance it looks like a penalty but I’ve only seen it once quickly. It might just glance off his thigh and if it does then he can’t move his arm out the way.”
