Sean Dyche had no complaints as Burnley suffered their first home defeat of the season to leaders Leicester City.
Goals in either half from arch nemesis David Nugent - his ninth career strike against the Clarets - and Chris Wood settled the top of the table clash, as the Foxes took full advantage of a side without the injured Danny Ings and Keiran Trippier and the suspended Dean Marney.
Losing Sam Vokes to a knee injury early on didn’t help matters either, and Dyche admitted: “I thought a couple of decisions didn’t go for us, but overall they deserved the win.
“They’re a very good side, at full strength, and obviously I’d have liked to have gone toe to toe with them without the challenges we had with our team.
“They’re top for a reason and they showed that.
“We’re down to one striker at the moment, which isn’t ideal and we’re trying to be flexible as a group, but we stayed in it.
“We conceded two poor goals by our standards and Scott Arfield had a great chance, and if that goes in it changes the feel of it.
“But overall I have no complaints.”
Dyche was unable to shed much light into Vokes’ injury, suffered when he got his studs stuck in the turf: “It’s too early to say, it’s not ideal when no one is near, they are the ones where you wonder, but we’ll have to wait and see.”
