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."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
