Burnley's unlikely rise to fourth place in the Premier League is this season's "Cinderella" story but the stereotype of the mill town Lancashire club led by a gruff "old-school" manager disguises the very effective method behind their rise.A solid defense has been the foundation of Dyche's team throughout his five years at Turf Moor and currently only leaders Manchester City and Manchester United have conceded less than Burnley's 12 goals from 17 games this season.In 2 1/2 seasons with Dyche in the top flight, Burnley have picked up 27 Premier League victories. Indeed, taking into account Championship wins, a total 33 of Dyche's 92 league victories with Burnley have been by that scoreline.Burnley aren't quite a team of bargain basement signings though – center-forward Chris Wood cost 15 million pounds when bought from Leeds United earlier this season and midfielders Jack Cork, Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick were all bought for fees between 10-15 million pounds.
