Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists he doesn't care about his side's winless away record, as long as they get enough points to stay in the Premier League.

The Clarets have only managed three draws away from home this season, without claiming any victories. However, they have an impressive home record which has seen them earn 32 points at Turf Moor.

Burnley's next trip is to Middlesbrough on Saturday, where they will have a chance to win their first away game, but Dyche isn't concerned about ending the drought on the road.

"I don’t think it’s necessarily about ending a winless run, that's just a story. It's points on the board," said Dyche, according to Burnley Express

"That's what you want. If they come away, great, if they come at home, great. It's not a big thought of mine. 

"Moving forward is important, building is important, improvement is important. Getting to the end of the season and reflecting on where we're at and our drive is to be in the Premier League – that's our main thing. 

"The next one’s Middlesbrough. Every game is a tough game. They have had a change of manager, whatever that brings."

The action gets underway at 16:00.
