Will Kyle Lafferty Play?-by TMP

Will Kyle Lafferty Play?-by TMP

Kyle Lafferty has returned to Burnley from his loan spell with League Two play-off hopefuls Darlington.

Lafferty has been an impressive member of the Quakers' side after scoring three goals in nine appearances for David Hodgson's men.

Steve Cotterill has been forced to recall Lafferty due to injury problems.

The main question though on Clarets lips is does this mean he will be sitting on the bench as a precaution or will he actually get chance to play either in the starting line up against Coventry this Saturday [25th Feb]or in the near future?

If he sits out the next few games on the bench and doesnt play, have we done Darlington a disservice?

I would love to see him come on and play upfront and I cant help thinking if we are to play 4:4:2, the young gun in partnership with Michael Ricketts would be a preferable bet to Gifton Noel Williams . It would certainly offer something fresh and may prove highly successful.

What are your views on it all?
