Treacy praise for Dyche

Burnley winger Keith Treacy has revealed his love for the game has been "reignited" under the management of Sean Dyche.

The Republic of Ireland international endured a difficult time while former boss Eddie Howe was in charge of the Clarets after being frozen out, but is now enjoying his football again.

Treacy scored the goal which snatched a draw for the Lancashire outfit against a Howe-led Bournemouth on Saturday.

That strike continued Burnley's impressive run of having not lost a game since Boxing Day as they target a return to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old has made 24 appearances for Dyche's promotion-chasing side in all competitions this season, contributing two goals.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I was never going to play under Eddie Howe no matter what I did and when that happens you fall out of love with it.

"The gaffer (Sean Dyche) has injected the enthusiasm back into me and now even when I am not playing I still have a smile on my face.

"He has a way about him of managing to keep the squad happy. He has reignited my love for the game and his man-management has been top class"
