Cape Town - Burnley boss Sean Dyche was the happier of the two managers after a goalless draw at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Crystal Palace v Burnley

Sean Dyche believes his side are doing "ok" as they find their feet in the English Premiership.

“We want the players to be brave and they are. You don’t want to come into this division with a load of flannel and whimpering around." said Burnley's Sean Dyche on the club's website.

“There might be a time when we have to rethink that. But my thinking was that we will go in the manner we do because we feel it’s appropriate for how the team operate, then we’ll see how it fares. 

“So far we have done ok, but we need to be better than ok and we are aware of that, but there are good signs. 

“Part of it is dealing with these full stadiums and the extra media attention and everything else. I think we are doing that well, but there’s work to be done in that top thirds to open teams up. 

“It was another really solid performance with plenty of good things. We know we are a work in progress and we are maturing as a side at this level. 

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock heaped praised on goalkeeper Julian Speroni after his late penalty save.

"He makes those saves every week, that's why he's been here so long, I think they broke the mould when he came, he's a one off. I don't think I've ever heard him shout and I can tell you he's a gem of a person as well.

"He comes in and trains every day in the right way and he showed what a good player he is as he didn't have a lot to do today and then he pulls off something like that." said the new Eagles manager on cpfc.co.uk.
