Dyche happy with life after Austin

Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists there is life after Charlie Austin as his side impressed in a 1-1 draw on the opening day of the Championship season against local rivals Bolton.

They looked really fit and there were good signs. It (the departure of Charlie Austin) has been, it's gone and we move on.

It bodes well for how we think the group is developing. It's one game and we've got so much still to do.

Dyche: Austin fit and raring to go

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says star striker Charlie Austin is looking fit and ready to go after his move away from Turf Moor fell through.

He's good, he looks fit and well. We're just building him up ready for the season.

From my point of view, I'm delighted (he's still at Burnley). He's a solid boy and it (missing out on his move to Hull) is not the biggest hardship, if you've come from playing for Poole Town, working on a building site.

There's plenty of good things going on for him, and the fact he's fit and well is one of them.

We're still letting the dust settle, we want to get him doing what he does best, enjoy his football and score some goals.

Football has a way of sorting things out one way or another.
