The Clarets boss has had to turn to free agents and bargain buys in a bid to build a squad capable of securing Premier League survival.

The Lancashire outfit's biggest outlay this summer was the £1.5million that was shelled out on Lucas Jutkiewicz from Middlesbrough, and Dyche admits that with limited resources, another signing is looking less and less likely.

"It’s a tough challenge still," Dyche told the Burnley Express.

"The club have made it clear there are certain guidelines I have to work within, and that’s part of my role.

"We have to flex our improved financial muscle accordingly but of course, in the Premier League, there is a reality to things.

“We have to build a club and a team."

Henri Lansbury became the latest target to rule himself out of a move by penning a new contract at Nottingham Forest, but despite another setback, Dyche insisted there is no problem between himself and the Clarets' hierarchy.

"We are aligned," Dyche added.

"There’s no point me saying ‘why haven’t I got £25m to spend?’ Because that would be counter-productive.

“I have to believe in the club, and there’s a collective one-club mentality."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
