Boss Sean Dyche admitted Burnley can play much better than they did in the 1-1 draw with Barnsley - but was happy enough with a point.

Charlie Austin's extraordinary goal-scoring season continued as he nodded home in the fourth minute, but Marcus Tudgay levelled it up - also with his head - just before the break.

Neither side could find a winner in the second half and Dyche admitted he would be going back over the Pennines with a point.

"I am pleased with the outcome more than the performance," he said. "I wasn't pleased with the performance, particularly the first half.

"But we demand a lot from the players and we have to be realistic and know we might have a soft performance every now and then.

"So within that, the major positive was that we came out of it with a point. But the performance, especially in the first half, was not something that I was enjoying.

"We never grasped the ball and that was the main thing I was disappointed with.

"But it is quite obvious we are becoming a difficult side to beat, which is important in the Championship."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
