Burnley manager Sean Dyche hit out at diving after an incident in Saturday's goalless Premier League draw when Huddersfield Town's Dutch winger Rajiv van La Parra blatantly threw himself to the floor in search of a penalty.

David Wagner, the Huddersfield manager, accepted the Dutchman was deserving of both his booking and a fine, but Dyche came in with a full-blooded tirade.

"I was too far away and Sean was even further away than I was". It's for the good of the game ...

"Now what happens is because they didn't get a penalty nothing happens and it's unacceptable". "I don't know the player as a person, it might be off the scale for him, but it's about the moment". "But it's got to go". Maybe the video thing [video assistant referee] will give the refs a chance to look at it. So we will see.

And with newly-promoted Huddersfield never overly ambitious and unable to break the deadlock themselves, both sides were forced to settle for taking some reward to occupy seventh and eighth places in the league table with nine points apiece - something both would have gladly taken six games into the campaign.

Burnley striker Chris Wood had a choice of half-chances at Turf Moor but was contained by the Terriers' Christopher Schindler.

"I do see similarities in the togetherness and team spirit, which is one of their key reasons for why they are success just like us", said Wagner.

"Everybody worked hard and I'm pleased with the clean sheet, of course, everybody feels responsibility for the defence in our team".
