Scan on McCann is Bad News

Chris McCann hobbled off the pitch with a twisted knee in the 28th minute of the game agaainst Sunderland on Saturday following a strong challenge by Michael Turner.

The midfielder faced a scan today to reveal the extent of the damage to his twisted knee ligaments and it was not good news.He could now be out for three months with medial ligament damage.

Burnley face Barnsley in a Carling Cup match at Oakwell this Tuesday night in a game where Owen Coyle is expected to give some of his fringe players a chance to shine. One such player is Kevin McDonald and the Scottish midfielder could be set for an extended run in the team whilst McCann recovers.

Joey Gudjonsson though was the player who replaced McCann on Saturday with Kevin McDonald sitting firmly rooted to the bench all afternoon.

Rotten luck although at least we have good cover in midfield these days if Chris faces a long time out. In a way would like to see the likes of Kevin McDonald a bit more and he should be up for making an impression in the top flight.

Would be a blow to lose Mccann -Along with Wade, I think he has probably been our best forward going player this season.
Claretdale
3 months is a blow! I wonder if this will mean an opportunity for Kev Mc or not ( based on the fact that Joey always seems to be the first change!).
Claretdale
I think either way it will mean we will see more of Kev. I suspect Gudjonsson is likely to start more than not, but that Kev will come on more from the bench possibly replacing Joey in the second half
