Dyche says Burnley ‘didn’t get to grips with the game’ after Leicester’s early red card

Sean Dyche says Burnley ‘didn’t get to grips with the game’ after seeing his side beaten 2-1 by 10-man Leicester at Turf Moor.

Wes Morgan’s 90th-minute winner snatched the points for Leicester, who played for over 85 minutes at with a man disadvantage after Harry Maguire’s early red card.

Speaking after the game, Burnley’s Ginger Mourinho said that the early sending off affected his side too.

“It can play with you psychologically when someone gets sent off so early, and we didn’t get to grips with the game in the first half,” Dyche told Match of the Day.

“Our use of the ball wasn’t good enough, we didn’t create enough chances, we created a few ‘maybes’ second half we adjusted and kept the ball better and we knocked on the door enough certainly not to lose the game. But we didn’t find the really good moments of quality to win the game.

“You cannot go on about conditions, both teams have to deal with it. You are always wary of a set piece when it’s a tight game and they have 10 men, but they stayed resolute, kept it hard as a unit and we didn’t find a way of breaking it down.”
