Burnley V Huddersfield - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Dyche with no new problems

Sean Dyche is set to select from an unchanged squad when Burnley host Huddersfield at Turf Moor.

The Clarets boss has no new injury problems but defender Michael Duff (calf) and winger Ross Wallace (knee) remain sidelined.

Danny Ings returned from a hamstring complaint to replace Junior Stanislas at half-time during Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Brighton at the Amex Arena and could push for a start.

Defender Ben Mee is back in training following his medial knee ligament injury and Dyche wants to pitch the former Manchester City youth team captain into a practice match this week but the Terriers' visit comes too soon for him.

Burnley have taken only two points from their last five npower Championship matches and lie eight points off the play-off places following their recent slump.

Huddersfield manager Mark Robins will also select his side from an unchanged squad.

Robins has no new injury or suspension problems, but is still without injured trio Danny Ward, Jermaine Beckford and Keith Southern.

Winger Ward has missed the last six games due to a broken metatarsal, on-loan Leicester striker Beckford is struggling with the hamstring problem that has ruled him out for a similar period and midfielder Southern has been sidelined since the middle of last month with an Achilles injury.

Defender Anthony Gerrard returned in the goalless home draw with Ipswich after an Achilles injury and helped shore up a leaky defence that conceded six in the previous game at Nottingham Forest.

Latest signing Theo Robinson made his second debut for the Terriers as a substitute against Ipswich after arriving on loan until the end of the season from Derby and could be included in the starting line-up, while midfielder Oliver Norwood, right-back Jack Hunt and winger Sean Scannell are all pushing for recalls.
