Oppositions View - Dyche, Burnley.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche left Birmingham feeling that his side should have ended up with all three points instead of just the one they took at St Andrews on Saturday.

Curtis Davies was on the mark to give Blues the lead on half an hour and Burnley could have found themselves level after Charlie Austin had the ball in the net, but referee Eddie Ilderton blew after Kieran Trippier, who crossed for Austin, was fouled by Mitch Hancox.

Burnley did get their reward, Danny Ings levelled things up and then soon after that the visitors were in front when Ross Wallace converted a superb free-kick.

But Blues were not finished and grabbed a late equaliser through Nikola Zigic in the last minute of the allotted 90.

Dyche told Sky Sports: 'It the madness of football. I told the lads that we are over-due a win. We need the rub of the green that sometimes changes.

'In this match, it went Birmingham's way. We have only lost one in six games but we have had four draws.

'We have to turn those performances into wins. I thought the lads deserved a win because I thought it was a thorough performance.

'The style of play and the way they delivered it I thought was excellent.'


But Dyche saved the final word to comment about the referee who denied Austin a goal when Burnley were a goal down.

He added: 'We scored two good goals and a third good goal but unfortunately the referee decided to pull up immediately. The referee told me, 'It was a really bad tackle and I jumped on it.'

'He knows he should have allowed the move to continue.'
