After beastly news today surrounding the injury to Paterson who was also stretchered off in the same game, Clarets fans would have been hoping for some good news on Jensen's injury and we appear to now be getting it.
Jensen, an ever-present in league games this season could keep his 100% record intact this Saturday against Spurs at White Hart Lane. He is responding well to treatment and seems to be winning his injury battle improving all the time.
Brian Jensen looks to be winning his fight to extend his ever-present league record after being stretchered off in the defeat at Oakwell.
Owen Coyle speaking to the Official Site about the Beast's injury has made some encouraging noises saying:
'He has a severely bruised leg but Brian, being the lad he is, I'm sure will make himself available and I would hope he will be fit for selection. When Darren Moore clatters into you it's going to be painful as Darren is a big powerful lad. It's badly bruised but it's significantly better than it was the other night and hopefully that will continue to the extent that he's fit and available for Saturday.'
Sounds promising and we need some good news after the Pato and McCann injuries, with both players now facing up to 3 months out of action.
