Dyche guarding against complacency

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says his side will not be taking Aberdeen lightly in Thursday's Europa League clash.

The pair meet at Pittodrie in what is being described as a 'Battle of Britain' clash in the second round of Europe's second-tier tournament.

While Aberdeen are regulars in the competition, this is the first time the Clarets have played in Europe for over half a century.

Burnley are the favourites to get a result in north-east Scotland but Dyche is adamant his team will not suffer from complacency.

"I know from our Scottish scouts the work done there, they've done very well, in my lifetime Rangers and Celtic are massive clubs and it's not easy to get in between them," he said.

"They've done a brilliant job in doing that, we won't be taking them lightly, they've done some really good work there.

"They're an organised side, they get the ball forward quickly, they back the play, they're willing to work, they play off their shape well, they're all things that our players have got to be ready for."
