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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
