Sean Dyche believes Burnley will re-emerge stronger from their Premier League experience after seeing the end of their top-flight stay confirmed despite victory at Hull.
Danny Ings scored the only goal of the game in the 62nd minute at the KC Stadium but other results conspired to send the Clarets straight back to the Championship.
Dyche maintained he had "no regrets" and defended his club from suggestions their failure to spend big money following promotion last summer had sealed their fate.
Dyche said: "We have got to look forward and learn from this division - there is no point constantly worrying about what 's been done. The reality of football in the Premier League is that the debts are huge and people are willing to write them off, but our board members do not have tens of millions so there has to be a balance. "That was the reality of the club - it has been here for 133 years and it has to be here for many more years to come, and the club is certainly in good shape."
Hull boss Steve Bruce said: Bruce said: "My main concern is we haven't got anywhere near the level we're capable of and I take responsibility for that. A lot of them fell short of the level and we have got to try and get it back because we have still got a chance."
