Brighton 0-0 Burnley: The Clarets remain winless in the League as Sean Dyche’s side move off the bottom of the table, but they remain without a win in the top flight this season.
(The African Stand) — Burnley manager Sean Dyche said, “it needs to come quickly” as they look “to get on the right side of the margins” after a goalless draw with fellow strugglers Brighton.
The Clarets, having their worst ever start to a top-flight season, are on two points from seven games, while the Seagulls have not won in six league games.
Burnley’s best chance was accidental as Matt Lowton‘s deep cross flew over Mat Ryan but hit the crossbar.
Brighton dominated as they often do but could not beat Nick Pope in Burnley’s goal. Pope did well to deny Danny Welbeck on his first start for Brighton.
This was a game that will have not been watched by many – behind closed doors and on pay-per-view – and that is probably for the best.
“We didn’t create as much as we’d like,” Dyche told BBC Sport. “I thought the mentality was right. We looked more like ourselves with our defensive shape and urgency.
“We know we have to create better chances but it’s a base to build on. We’re never a million miles away. We’re getting closer.”
