Burnley sit bottom of the table with four games remaining, but Dyche’s reputation has been enhanced, and he has already had to fend off speculation linking him with a summer switch to Derby County.

Ahead of the game at West Ham today, Mee, asked whether he would want Dyche to remain at the helm, admitted: “Yeah, definitely with what he has achieved here.

“He has brought a lot of lads’ games on in his time here so obviously we definitely want to keep hold of him.”

Mee knows it will be a tough task to climb out of the mire - although Hull and Leicester have provided inspiration with their recent spurts of form: “We have seen what Leicester have done - four on the bounce, they have done and it’s a great achievement for them to be honest and we are looking to emulate that, get 4 on the bounce.
