Clarets boss Sean Dyche was pleased with what he saw at York on Tuesday night.
Burnley progressed to the second round of the Capital One Cup with a 4-0 win against the League 2 side, with goals from David Jones, Junior Stanislas, Danny Ings and Scott Arfield.
And Dyche said: “I thought in the first 15-20 minutes there was some good play and we opened them up at will.
“They did come back into it at the end of the second half. We could have been at least three up by then, but we weren’t and all credit to York because the keeper made good saves and they blocked a few to stop us from getting the second or third.
“And then they really put it on top of us for 10-20 minutes towards the end of the first half and that’s very hard to play against sometimes.
“There was a real shift in their mentality, they really fought and tried to get back in the game. Half-time came at a good time for us.
“In the second half I thought we calmed things down and played some good stuff, looked nice and solid and came out worthy winners in the end.
“There are a lot of positives. Scott Arfield comes on and gets himself on the scoresheet, Ingsy nicks another one, there are different scorers.
“The main positive is we got the job done.”
