Burnley Promoted to The Top flight: But Dyche is Still Hungry For More!
Burnley boss Sean Dyche saw his side seal a £100m promotion to the English Premier League tonight. The Clarets have secured a top-two spot tonight by defeating Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in the Championship, the hero of the match was Sam Vokes, whose brilliant header in the second-half won them the match. Burnley are unbeaten in their last 22 matches, confirming their visit to the top tier of the English football and also a bumper day of pay as the broadcast rights soar for the 2016‑17 season.
While the Burnley boss was in a state of peaceful happiness as his players marked the occasion in style, The Guardian reports that Dyche is planning to do his same old modest celebration from the 2013-14 season when Burnley were promoted. “It feels fantastic. It’s marvellous. But I’ll be in the car later, driving down the M6 with my kids and my wife,” he added. “I’ll probably grab a coffee at McDonald’s like I normally do. Two years ago people were staring at me like ‘is he really in here getting a coffee?’, but I am normal, I do have a life, and that’s what I’ll be doing.
“The lads will get a couple of days off, no mistake, and if they have a couple of drams they deserve it. But come Thursday, or Wednesday, they’ll be ready to train. We’ve got a chance to win the title now and we must be ready to take it.”
Turf Moor was experiencing joyous celebrations everywhere, the fans were pouring onto the field. But the Burnley boss was keen to state that the promotion was just one of the season’s goals but the next one is more important – being champions! The current league leaders finished second in 2013‑14, that too to Leicester City, the Premier League 2015-16 champions. So, there is no doubts that all eyes are now Burnley and Dyche’s eyes are on the trophy!
“We’ll be focused on Saturday [against Charlton] I can assure you. We were runners-up last time don’t forget. So we want to win it. That will be the focus. We’ll go and win it, that’s our job. Let’s enjoy it now because this is another part of history for this club and history runs deep here.”
Meanwhile Brighton and Middlesbrough, both will have to wait until the last league game on Saturday, when they face each other to decide their positions in the league table. James Wilson’s scrappy 95th-minute equaliser for Brighton helped The Seagulls to snatch a point from a 1-1 draw with Derby County. On the other hand, Middlesbrough drew 2-2 at Birmingham and on Saturday both of them will try to seal their place in the Premier League next season.
The Brighton manager Chris Hughton said:
“It becomes clear [needing to win],”
“Sometimes when you go into a game knowing a draw will do, a drawing mentality turns into a drawing mentality. We know what we have to do. We just have to show enough quality, against a really good team. There’s no doubt they’re favourites, and they’ll be pleased with the result today, but we’ll give ourselves every chance.”
About the final game of the Championship, he added: “Going into the last game on a defeat is probably the worst way to do it. We have got a point so we’re going up to Middlesbrough with some confidence.”
“I think it will give us something. We weren’t at our best, but it’s still a game we didn’t lose.” Hughton added.
