Sean Dyche hailed Burnley's record profit - even though he knows he may not be given much of it.

The Clarets' seventh-placed finish in the Premier League contributed to a yield of £36.6million during the financial year ending June 2018.

Dyche said: "After a seventh-place finish last season and the incentives that are put on top of that, then still to make £36.6million is a really, really positive thing.

"It's difficult for me sometimes because obviously you want some of that to keep building the squad."

Burnley boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 victory over Wolves last time out. Next up today comes a trip to Bournemouth.

Dyche and Bournemouth counterpart Eddie Howe are two of the leading English managers in the Premier League, and the Burnley boss said: "I'm a big fan of Eddie. Our job is to stop (his team) and deliver our own performance. In the last 13 games we've picked 21 points up, so we know we can do that."
