Sean Dyche will leave his sense of attachment to Watford "parked" when they host his Burnley side on Saturday at the end of an emotional week for the Hornets.

The Premier League contest at Vicarage Road takes place three days after the funeral of Graham Taylor, who was Watford's chairman when Dyche was promoted from their coaching staff for his first managerial job in 2011.

Yesterday's ceremony in the town was attended by Dyche, also a former Watford player.

And the Clarets boss said this afternoon: "I thought the way it was delivered and taken care of was fantastic from the club's point of view - inside the church, the feeling.

"They are not easy affairs, of course, for anyone, and not when you have got someone who is so big for what he has done in the game, and particularly at Watford.

"I thought it was handled fantastically well by all."

Dyche has already this term stressed the respect he has for Watford, despite the way his time as their manager came to an end.

The 45-year-old was dismissed after one season, in which he had guided them to their highest finish in four years, by the new Italian owners.

And speaking about his feelings towards the club, he added: "People forget because I was manager for one year, but I played there for a number of years.

"Then I was youth coach, assistant manager and first-team manager, so I have got a fair connection there.

"The fact is I had some very good years at that club, including with Graham for a year when I was manager.

"So there is a lot of attachment - but it is parked before we play them on Saturday, I can assure you."

The match could see Burnley's two new arrivals, midfielder Ashley Westwood and wide man Robbie Brady, their record signing, make their debuts after joining from Aston Villa and Norwich respectively on Tuesday.

Transfer deadline day also saw 10th-placed Burnley record their fifth straight Premier League home victory as they defeated Leicester 1-0.

But there was a blow for them in the first half as Steven Defour was forced off with a hamstring injury.

And Dyche has revealed the midfielder may be sidelined for more than a fortnight.

"Unfortunately Steven won't be fit for this weekend and we'll wait to see how long, but it won't be days - it could be beyond a couple of weeks," he said.
