Sean Dyche believes goals will come for Chris Wood and the Clarets strikers if Burnley continue to perform as they did in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Everton.

Robbie Brady scored for the Clarets, who have just five goals in 10 league games this season with only two coming from strikers - both via Wood.

Dyche left the New Zealand international on for the full 90 minutes against Everton, opting to replace Jay Rodriguez with Ashley Barnes in the second period.

Wood spurned one great first half chance before being denied by a good Jordan Pickford save late on with the Burnley striker second only to Patrick Bamford in big chances missed in the Premier League this season.

But the Clarets chief feels the striker is not far away from hitting his straps this term and explained his decision making process.

"I ask for my forwards to be in a position to score goals, scoring goals is the hardest job in the game for them," said Dyche of the missed chances.

"As long as they are getting in positions and the areas, and are producing the performances that allow them the chance to score, or assist others, then that is how I judge their performances.

"Goals will come for strikers here as long as we keep putting them in the right areas and give them chances.

"I thought we did today, there were a number of chances that just needed that final touch or moment of quality.

"I thought we asked a lot of questions in different ways and I was pleased with the attacking side of it."

And Dyche revealed he was initially planning to bring on both Barnes and Matej Vydra and explained his forward thinking after the game.

"I wanted to get a bit of energy up there," said the Clarets chief of introducing Barnes. "Jay had worked very hard as he does and Barnesy has been a very good campaigner for us.

"He was effective and had an input into the game which was important.

"I was seeing how early I could get Vyds on but when Robbie went down we had to safeguard him. It is very difficult with the players you leave to do the 90 and the players you have to get off

"That safeguarding is disappearing slightly. We are getting these players more match fit so we can use them as wisely as we can.

"Vyds is unlucky because I was going to change them both (the strikers) with probably 20 minutes to go but then we thought Barnesy first and then Vyds and then Robbie went down and you have to be careful with just one sub left."
