Burnley boss Sean Dyche urged calm after defeat at Newcastle United.

The 1-0 defeat came courtesy of Callum Wilson's winner for the hosts.

Dyche said: "First half we put on a positive display but we couldn't open them up. It was decent. A lot of solid performances. It is about adding those details. Second half there was people working but we couldn't open them up. It has been a challenge this season to find those details.

"They looked nervous. We were better than them first half and looked more of a threat. The goal against the run of play calmed them, down. Second half they had something to hang on to. The crowd got behind them instead of against them We have been a on a run of performances. We need to turn them into wins.

"I thought at the time it was a foul [for the goal] but looking back it is a clumsy challenge. It is one of them things. Their striker came alive when it popped out of his hands. We talk to our strikers about that. Not all goals can be pretty goals. At that stage we were going well. It changed the game.

"It leaves us working. The Premier League has never been an easy task. Every season is tough and is work for us. A challenge. There is a lot of football to be played and we have been down this road before. The players are not a million miles away. The next game is going to come around and you have to play it."
