Heaton banned for Clarets

Burnley will be without first-choice goalkeeper Tom Heaton for their Capital One Cup clash with Sky Bet League One side Preston.

The former Cardiff man was dismissed for picking up two yellow cards in Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Brighton and will serve a one-match ban when the Lilywhites visit Turf Moor.

Fellow shot-stopper Alex Cisak made his Clarets debut when he came on to replace Heaton at the weekend and he is expected to deputise once again.

Defenders Ben Mee and Michael Duff are in contention to make their first appearances of the season after recovering from hamstring injuries.

Preston manager Simon Grayson could shuffle his pack.

Forwards Stuart Beavon and Iain Hume are both vying for a starting berth up front after recovering from their respective knee and groin injuries.

Beavon made his first appearance of the season when he came on as a second-half substitute during his side's 2-2 draw with MK Dons, and he is in contention to start on Tuesday.

Midfielders Joel Byrom and Chris Humphrey will be hoping for a place in Grayson's starting XI after coming off the bench to score in Sunday's 4-4 draw with Coventry.
