Dyche aiming to keep Burnley momentum going

Sean Dyche insists winning games will not change Burnley's approach to the Barclays Premier League.

Written off before the start of the season, the Clarets' prospects appeared bleak when they failed to win any of their first 10 league games.

I don't think it's ever got to a stage where it's been too affecting of the players. I think it's been positive all the way through. We believe in that environment anyway, the culture we set here.

Of course, winning enhances that, and it just reminds the players of what they're about. We made a fantastic habit of winning a lot last year - the challenge changed, quite simply.

I felt wins would come regardless of all the outside media angles, and they have come, but I also suggested that one doesn't cure everything and two doesn't - you need more. So we're still thirsty and hungry to get more.
