Burnley 1-0 Leeds United: Post Match Quotes

Quotes from the two managers following Leeds United's 1-0 defeat to Burnley.

Alex Livesey

Below are some quotes from both Neil Warnock and Sean Dyche following United's 1-0 away defeat to Burnley.

Neil Warnock:

"I was as disappointed as I've felt this season. I'm not being disrespectful to Burnley, but I felt we were far superior as a side and if we wanted to go on and win it we should have gone on and won it.

At half-time I thought we could step up a gear and we went on to dominate the second half, but if you don't take your chances.

You can't waste the chances we did and win games. They didn't have a shot in the second half then they break away and score like that. It's very disappointing to say the least. We had some great opportunities, and we should have won the game.

Dioufy had a good chance and the one which played Aidy White in was like a back pass. I think their keeper was surprised that he had the save to make.

I can't fault the effort, but we should we be beating teams like Burnley. I thought we were far batter than them and to go back with a 1-0 defeat is hard to take. I think we expected them to be better and once we saw what they had we had to step up a gear.

But we had 20 minutes where Beccs couldn't hold it up, and we had 20 minutes where Dioufy couldn't hold it up, and you can't win things without your strikers...but there were other areas as well. I can't fault the effort, but to lose to a goal like that."

Sean Dyche:

"Charlie knows the build-up to that goal was top drawer. If you give someone like Charlie a ball like that into the box there is a good chance it will end up in the back of the net, especially at the moment.

I thought we had enough chances to win the game. We created some good chances in the first half, had some good pockets of play and could have arguably nicked one but Leeds are a good side and Neil always has his sides set up well.

In the second half they got the upper hand for 20 minutes and played some clever football to peg us back.

I said to them at half-time that if you do the basics well then you will win this game and the goal was top drawer.

We can still play better but there was pockets of really good play tonight and that was really pleasing. If you keep the opposition at zero then you have a chance.

We are still a work in progress, most teams are and we are no different, there is much more to come."
