Dyche looks ahead to Spurs challenge
Sean Dyche hopes Burnley show why they are on their best Premier League unbeaten run when Tottenham arrive on Saturday.
The Clarets have not lost in the league since a 5-1 hammering by Everton on Boxing Day which is beginning to look like a clear turning point in their season.
They remain only three points above the relegation zone although their seven unbeaten matches include a draw with Manchester United and, in their last game two weeks ago, a 3-1 victory on the south coast over Brighton.
"Over that run we've confirmed we're in a better place," said boss Dyche. "You don't run away with yourself because it can change quickly, but it's fair to say we've changed on the positive side and the players deserve a lot of credit because it's not easy.
"We've been heavily questioned this season, myself and the team, and to come out of that with a good run of performances and results is very pleasing. We've got to continue in that vein."
The Clarets go into the game well rested after no game in the FA Cup last weekend. Dyche took the opportunity to take his entire squad and backroom staff on a four-day trip to the Quinta do Lago resort in Portugal.
