Matej Vydra says Burnley's strikers must start scoring as they bid for their first Premier League win this season against Bournemouth today.

Sean Dyche's Clarets are bottom of the Premier League with only one point from five games and have not been helped by the failure of Vydra, Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood and Sam Vokes to score in the league.

Vydra, who did score against Olympiakos in the Europa League, is hopeful things will soon turn around.

He said: "We need to score one or two goals and confidence will come. Right now the top scorer is defender James Tarkowski, so it's not the best statistic for the strikers.''

Opponents Bournemouth have won three of their first five games.

It is a reversal of fortunes, with Eddie Howe's side losing six of their first eight games at the start of the last campaign.

Dyche said: "Bournemouth have done brilliantly, last season and all the time Eddie's been there.

''And they continue to do so with this good form early in the season."
