Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes the club's consistent work ethic has been the key to their success in the Premier League and FA Cup this season.

The Clarets have performed above expectations so far this campaign, moving up to 12th in the league standings, while also progressing to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Dyche's charges have lost only three of their last 11 games and have a chance to clinch an FA Cup quarter-final berth with victory over Lincoln City on Saturday.

“They value everything they’ve worked hard for and that’s the key to it, there’s been no gimmes at this club,” said Dyche, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

“We’ve had to work for everything we’ve got through my time here.

“We’re still doing that. I think there’s an honesty to how we go about it. It’s a constant process and I think they’re mindset is on this.

“Whether it’s at home to Chelsea or in the cup against Lincoln it’s another game, we’ve got to go to war and do our business.”
