“It’s a nice positive because everyone keeps talking about our home form, which seems to make more of a story because it’s a little bit of a negative,” added Dyche, whose side has won just four times behind closed doors at Turf Moor.

“The balance is a very strong away season. We’ve enjoyed that side of it.

“Our home form has suffered partly, I believe, because of our fans.

“I think the fans reward us with their support through thick and thin and have done for a long time.

“I think that (their return) will be important, as long as things are appropriate and they can come back in the stadiums in numbers.

“I don’t think we’re the only ones. Statistically there are a few clubs who have fared nowhere near as well as they normally do at home. It’s not just us.”

The Clarets’ list of away successes includes Premier League firsts at
Arsenal and Liverpool and key victories at Everton and Crystal Palace.

And Dyche – whose side sits 12 points clear of the bottom three going into the final round of fixtures – added: “You’ve heard me say this a million times. You assess the season at the end and where did you finish.

“Well, after all that’s gone on this season, I can assure you that I’m delighted to be in the Premier League.

“That’s what I’ll assess. Do we look at the detail? Of course, we do. We de-brief the season with the staff and we de-brief home and away and the stats, analysis and facts.

“The end product is, what does the league say? And the league table – 100 per cent already says – that we will be in the Premier League.”
