Dyche happy with QPR point

Burnley manager Sean Dyche was pleased with his side after their 3-3 draw at Loftus Road against QPR in the Sky Bet Championship.

QPR took the lead through Kevin Doyle in the first half only for Danny Ings to equalise. Richard Dunne then hammered in from a corner to give the hosts a 2-1 lead at the break.

Burnley started the second half brightly and raced into a 3-2 lead thanks to a double from Sam Vokes.

The visitors could not hold on though and Modibo Maiga levelled late on.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Dyche was delighted with Burnley's performance: "It's a tough place to play. I thought the manner of how we went about it was impressive, the way we tried to win.

"We believe in going to win and I thought we did everything but today, and the players were terrific.

"We like to play with a tempo and shift the ball around quickly and with our forwards we have good outlets. I want our football to be mixed and try to hurt teams in as many ways as we can and I thought we did that today.

"Having said that we did give away some soft goals by our standards."

Vokes linked up with Ings and was a constant threat to the QPR defence, and Dyche said he had a quiet word with Vokes at the break.

Dyche added: "There's a sharpness to the play. I reminded Vokes at half-time about what a good player he is and I thought he showed that after the break.

"We were upset about the goals we conceded though because we knew about it, Doyle in particular in the first half."
