Simplicity the key for Dyche
Burnley manager Sean Dyche hopes a return to the basics will help his rally during the second half of the season.
The Clarets have struggled over the first four months of the campaign and sit 18th in the Premier League table ahead of Wednesday's trip to the John Smith's Stadium to take on basement club Huddersfield Town.
The Turf Moor outfit will be looking for back-to-back wins after beating West Ham 2-0 on Sunday and Dyche admits that a frank exchange with his players ahead of the Hammers' clash saw them raise their game to take all three points.
"We shared a few views on it, picked a team, and then showed they were willing to take the challenge on, because that was a performance full of endeavour, fight and quality, that underbelly of a real team that can be effective," he said.
Burnley have struggled to match last season's success when they finished seventh, conceding far too many goals after being so tight at the back last term.
The boss feels there are plenty of positive signs on the training pitch that his charges are starting to turn to corner as he tries to make them believe in themselves once again.
"They've been showing it in training, to be fair, lots of work doing in training, lots of tactical understanding, them bringing their part to play," added Dyche.
"But I spoke before the game about the trust, the trust in yourself to know, because they do know how to deliver a performance.
"Remind them of the simplicity of it, and allow them to go out and play."
