Burnley travel to Newcastle tomorrow and come face to face with our former Eddie Howe who has recently replaced Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park.

Howe said of the squad he’s taken over: “We’ve seen a group of players that are desperate to succeed, a group of players that are willing to work and learn, that are absolutely desperate to get that first win of the season. I’ve been really pleased with the group so far.”

As always, he was asked about Burnley and Sean Dyche and said: “I’ve got nothing but admiration for Sean and the job that he’s done at Burnley and for the football club. Some amazing people there that I met in my time with Burnley. A great club full of amazing people and a very good group of players who have done very well for Sean now for a very long period of time.

“I think the job that he’s done there cannot be underestimated. For the length of time, the longevity that he’s had and the success that he’s had. Full credit to him because I know how difficult that is. It will be good to see him at the weekend but obviously we need to get the result that we need.”

Dyche will want three points from a game against one of the two teams currently below us in the table. “They are all important games, and we know that,” he said. “We have only lost one in eight, but we have had a lot of draws and we have to get the right side of the fine margins.

“We put in a strong performance defensively but not offensively on Wednesday night against Wolves and we have to be better in that department. We still maintain the belief within ourselves and the belief we can collect points in the Premier League.

“We are aware of the possible changes of style at Newcastle United and what Eddie is looking for them to do. No game is easy in the Premier League and we need to go to Newcastle with a firm jaw and ready to play.

“Turning our draws into wins is obviously a very important factor going forwards. On the other hand, we are playing very good sides. Wolves are a very good side. They are showing that right now and they definitely reacted after a flat one last weekend. They came out with more fizz and detail in their game, but we dealt with that well. The creative side is something we continue to look at. We want to continue to improve in that area and score more goals.”
