Dyche backs Clarets to turn corner

first_img Press Association The Clarets go in search of their first top-flight win at their ninth attempt against Everton at Turf Moor on Sunday. A second-half lapse cost his men dear against West Ham last week but Dyche is adamant there is still the desire within his camp to turn things round. Dyche said: “We are having to learn as we go. “There is no doubting the players’ physical power, their energy, their endeavour and belief – but it comes down to quality and awareness and experience. “We haven’t got a very experienced Premier League squad and we have had some tough lessons already. “We believe this group is honest enough to keep learning and not be broken by it. You just get dented and you take the knocks and come off the ropes and get ready to take it again. “We hope to use that mentality wisely over the season and the next step is to use it to learn how to win.” Dyche hopes midfielder Dean Marney will be fit to return after missing three games with a hamstring injury while Steven Reid is also pushing for a recall. Despite Everton’s inconsistent start to the season and a midweek trip to France in the UEFA Europa League, Dyche is under no illusions about the difficulties of finally claiming a three-point haul on Sunday. Dyche added: “They have had an indifferent start to the season by their standards but they are a great club with a great manager and these are the kinds of challenges we wanted last year. “The players want it and the town wants it. We have gone up to a different level and we are creating chances. it is all about delivering that cutting edge that we know is there.” center_img Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists his side have the character to bounce back from their growing streak of disappointments and beat the odds by securing Barclays Premier League survival. last_img read more

Alex Nwora Appointed As New D’Tigers Coach

first_imgNigerian-American, Alex Nwora has been named as the new head coach of the senior men’s basketball team, D’Tigers team ahead of their 2017 Men Afrobasket tournament title defence.This was made known on Wednesday by the President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation, Engineer Musa Kida ahead of the Senior Men’s national team’s exercise expected to commence on Friday, 12th, 2017.According to Kida, the decision to appoint Nwora who guided Cape Verde to the 2013 Afrobasket where they defeated D’Tigers by 79 points to 76 was borne out of the desire to give qualified Nigerians the opportunity of making history with the national teams.“We started this project with the D’Tigress with the appointment of Sam Vincent, Mfon Udoka, Peter Ahmedu and Okworogun Ochuko. There is no point giving out national team jobs to expatriates when we have Nigerians all over the world who are duly qualified to get the job done.”He enjoined all Nigerians to support Nwora who is no stranger to the African basketball scene where he coached Cape Verde from 2009 to 2013.Nwora will be assisted by Kwara Falcons head coach, Aderemi Adewunmi and Gombe Bulls Abdulrahman Mohammed who have both guided their teams to the top of the Atlantic and Savannah Conferences of the NBBF organized basketball league.Relatedlast_img read more
