Sean Dyche is pleased that Burnley have managed to reach the Europa League play-off round considering he has made plenty of changes to his side.

The Clarets face Olympiakos in the next round after getting the better of Istanbul Basaksehir on Thursday even though Dyche made six changes from the team that drew 0-0 at Southampton on Sunday.

Burnley edged to a 1-0 aggregate victory at Turf Moor against the Turkish side thanks to a Jack Cork goal in extra time.

Burnley can be backed at 2.45 to beat Watford in their next Premier League match on Sunday while they are 10.00 to win the match from behind.

"We made six changes but the physicality of the side was unbelievable," said Dyche. "I thought the work ethic and the shape of the team were very good.

"We work on a squad mentality here and a lot of it was on show again.

"We're in the competition as novices but so far the novices are doing okay. We've given a good account of ourselves."

Burnley have struggled for goals in the Europa League and Premier League so far this season and can be backed at 6.50 to beat Watford 1-0 and at 2.37 to keep a clean sheet in the encounter.
