Sean Dyche was in defiant mood after Burnley lost a crunch relegation six-pointer to Newcastle United on Saturday.
Callum Wilson's goal, coming after Nick Pope lost a high ball colliding with Fabien Schar, proved enough to give Eddie Howe's side their first victory of the season and move them level with the Clarets in the Premier League table.
Burnley started the game well but after falling behind they rarely looked like getting back into the contest during a poor second half showing.

But Dyche felt there were still positives to take and feels his side are not too far away from stringing together some much needed wins, even if the attacking troubles are concerning the boss.
Here's what the Clarets chief had to say after the game.
What was your view on the winning goal?
"At the time you think it is a possible foul but having looked at it after the game, it is a clumsy challenge but not necessarily a bad challenge. It just bounced out of Pope’s hands after he took it so well. Their player reacted quickly and it was a good finish."
Your thoughts on the performance?
"In the first half I thought we were really good. We came here and took the game on, we opened them up on occasions and created good quality moments and chances without taking them which is a question mark of our season.
"Some of the quality was really pleasing but goals change the feeling of games, not just the scoreline, and I felt it did for them.
"It gave them something to hang onto and changed the feel in the crowd.
"They looked really nervous in the first half and I thought we played well."
How disappointed were you that you showed so little in the second half?
"The goal changed the feel and they had something to fight for and hang on to. We had to defend the early part of the half. I thought we dealt with that okay but it was the other end and finding the moments.
"We obviously scored a goal which was rightly offside but it was some very good play. Right at the end Dwight put in a couple of great crosses but we couldn’t get on the end of it.
"That continues to be a challenge for us, those cutting edge moments and trying to find a way in that top third.
"That is the challenge that’s ahead of us because generally the performance was solid and organised.
"There were some good individual performances.
"Maxwel was a loss because he was sharp and he looked alive and gave us something different in the first half.
"It is a really frustrating one but it has been like that this season where we have never been a million miles away but are not finding the key moments."
How damaging a defeat is it psychologically given it's to a relegation rival?
"Not at all, I have been down this road before and it is not about them it is about us.
"The challenge for us is to have a clear minded focus, it is our job to look after ourselves.
"We have been down this road before unfortunately where we have had to work to keep the right mentality and you could see that today.
"It is about adding those quality moments and finding the key moments and we have done that before so it is important we remember that, reference it and use it wisely going forwards."
Your belief rarely wavers, do you see enough in this group to beat the drop?
"Belief is a constant for me. There is no lack of that, you can see by the way they are performing.
"The challenge of the season is the season’s work.
"A few seasons ago we had 12 points from 19 games and ended up with 40 so we understand the nature of the market we are in.
"We understand the challenge, I quite obviously do.
"I believe in these players because we have got quality and we are showing it but we are not far away. We are just short of the real detail in the final third.
"A lot of the defending was good.
"It is the cutting edge that we continue to work on and look to find the moments to make a difference.
"That is a continued work in progress."
What's the injury situation with Ben Mee and Maxwel Cornet?
(On Mee) "It was serious enough to keep him out today.
(On Cornet) "I think it is a thigh strain so we will wait and see how that calms down."
