Austin continued his rich goalscoring form as Burnley beat Derby 2-0 at Turf Moor.

But instead of lavishing praise on the striker, Dyche preferred to recognise his side's work ethic and their defence.

"It was very pleasing," said the Burnley boss. "I have spoken recently about how the performance levels have been worthy of more points on the board and today there were signs of another good performance.

"I don't think it was quite as routine as people think because Derby are a fair side.

"They have always got players who can cause trouble and can come alive like they did for 20 minutes in the second half and I thought we came out worthy winners today.

"The clean sheet was appropriate today given that we have had a couple of goals recently that have gone in against the run of play and that can be a bitter pill to swallow but they went about their business well today.

"A lot has been made of Charlie scoring but behind that there are another 10 players and it is important that they are ready to do their job if he has a quiet day.

"We're one loss in seven and we are looking good value for that and if I am being greedy we are better value to have more points than that."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
