Burnley defender Kevin Long: We want Europe for fans

Dyche's remarkable success has been built on a small, tight squad and meticulous preparation, things that would be severely tested by the Europa League.

Long got his chance in Saturday's Premier League clash against Leicester, and he repaid Dyche by scoring his first ever Premier League goal. "Who knows what it will bring but we will just wait and see".

"There was a good reaction from the players and we were unlucky with some of the chances, maybe we lacked a clinical edge, but we tried for the whole game with a good intensity". "We need a result", said Puel when asked if the match was a must-win game.

With the final taking place in his hometown of Lyon, the France striker has extra motivation to get through the last four. However, they were knocked out of the respected group in the Champions League and have taken the competition by storm.

Burnley could not have made a better start to such an important game, going two up inside nine minutes through former Leicester striker Chris Wood and defender Kevin Long.

"Credit to Leicester, the last half-an-hour if not more they were excellent".

Jamie Vardy pulled one back to set up a nervy final 20 minutes but Burnley held on to secure five straight top-flight wins for the first time in 50 years, while a return to European competition - they haven't played at that level since 1966-67 - remains a genuine possibility. I'm not going to go there, there's no point. "But I've got no loyalties to them any more so hopefully we'll have a good weekend".

The visitors piled on the pressure but could not find an equaliser and suffered a blow in the closing moments when Schmeichel was hurt in a challenge by Barnes and had to be replaced.

Wood said: "I had a great time there, I think it's a great club".

Puel admitted his side's hopes of European football are now hanging by a thread but was happy with the response to their poor start.

Ayew's equaliser was no less than Swansea deserved and, following Southampton's defeat to Chelsea in the early afternoon kick-off, it leaves them five points clear of the relegation zone. "We want to finish strong for the fans". It was close but after the two goals it was surprising.
