Sean Dyche delight as Burnley end winless run

Burnley returned to winning ways, after 11 matches without a victory, with Saturday's 2-1 win over Everton at Turf Moor and manager Sean Dyche praised his team's resilience.

The Clarets came from behind to win, for the first time in 54 occasions under Dyche in the Premier League, thanks to goals from strikers Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood.

But Dyche laughed off the suggestion that European football would be the next goal for the Clarets given that survival is all but mathematically secure.

Burnley's winless streak, which saw them draw six times, including against both Manchester clubs, had threatened to take the shine off an unexpectedly positive season for the Lancashire club.

Dyche singled out right-back Matthew Lowton for praise after his defence-splitting pass set up Barnes for the equaliser.
