Austin netted his 21st goal of a phenomenal season to date when he opened the scoring in the Clarets' 1-1 midweek draw with Barnsley.

His fourth-minute header at Oakwell ended a three-game run without a goal and Dyche believes this run being viewed as a relative drought demonstrates the scale of the 23-year-old's achievements.

"We know he is a threat and potent in the penalty area - he's a great threat to have," said the former Watford chief.

"Three games without scoring and it's been called a drought, (it) is incredible.

"He just keeps getting in there and he has got that knack and desire. If you go in the six-yard box enough you're going to score goals, no matter who you are."

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
