Dyche looking forward to Foxes challenge

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says he’s looking forward to Tuesday’s Premier League clash with Leicester City and hopes his side can continue their recent strong run of form (Burnley 19/10, draw 23/10, Leicester City 6/4 – Match Betting).

After months of struggling for results, Burnley have turned a corner since the start of the year, with just one defeat in their last seven league games.

Picking up 10 points in those seven games has seen the Clarets climb the standings and drag a host of teams above them into the relegation dogfight.

A win or draw against the Foxes at Turf Moor on Tuesday night would see Burnley leapfrog Everton and out of the bottom three into 17th place in the standings.

Dyche knows it won’t be easy in their next outing against Brendan Rodgers’ side, even though the Foxes are looking for their first Premier League win of 2022.

“The last couple of seasons Leicester have set the bar very high and they’ve been a good side, an effective side,” Dyche said. “They’ve got a good manager and they’re a good outfit, so we need to continue the strong run of form we’re in and take on the challenge.”

The Clarets will have to do without Erik Pieters with the experienced defender set for a knee scan, while Matej Vydra and Johan Berg Gudmundsson also miss out.

Burnley (13/8 to be relegated) will however be boosted by the return of Ashley Westwood who is available once again after recovering from Covid.
