Burnley manager Sean Dyche thanked Republic of Ireland international Keith Treacy for salvaging his "below par" promotion chasers a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth.

Treacy, 25, came off the bench to rescue a point by scoring with almost his first touch after Tokelo Rantie had headed Bournemouth in front.

Relieved Dyche, whose side remain unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship since St Stephen’s Day, said: "We were well below par.

"But we have built an amazing mentality here so that when five or six players are not at their best we can still come away with a point.

"There was no sign of us wilting or going under after they scored and we limited them to few chances.

"It was nice for Keith to get a goal. It was a great run and a great finish.

"We want the players out of the side to be ready to come on and affect the game and they certainly did that."

Treacy won six caps for Ireland under former Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni, the last coming against Croatia in August 2011.
