Burnley manager Sean Dyche says that Huddersfield Town deserve credit for the tactics employed at Turf Moor as the sides played out a goalless draw on Saturday afternoon.

Sean Dyche has credited Huddersfield Town for making life tough for his Burnley side after being held to a goalless draw at Turf Moor.

The Clarets managed three shots on target across the 90 minutes, as they endured another relatively frustrating afternoon on home soil.

Dyche admits that the onus was on his team to find a way through but, having failed to do so, he was not willing to criticise the opposition's tactics.

"It was a close affair, without a shadow of a doubt. We came across a team who had the freedom of having just come into the Premier League, and they were very defensive," he told reporters.

"We knew we would have to try to break down a block defence at times, and that's tricky. We lacked a cutting edge, Woody (Chris Wood) had a great chance from Wardy's (Stephen Ward) cross, but overall I'm happy to get another point on the board.

"Credit to Huddersfield, they gave a good account of themselves, they played a lot on the break and they've already got a good number of points on the board this season. We take that point and move forward."

Burnley, who have won two of their six league fixtures this term, find themselves level on points with Huddersfield in ninth place.
