But Dyche said: “It was a poor goal. We huffed and puffed a little bit, they’ve had a tough season and played better today. We have to be careful with petering out but there’s a lot of good work done. The edge has just come off lately.

“We’re missing two key players again today and that’s been the story of the season for us. That doesn’t help. We’ve asked a lot of these players and we’ve just petered out at the end.

“We didn’t find the key moments.”
