Clarets striker, Jay Rodriguez has found it difficult to break into the first-team this season not helped of course by an injury he picked up in a Reserves game against Hull last September. He had a fractured ankle and was sidelined for over three months before being back in contention.
He has made just two appearances this season both in the Carling Cup. He was in the starting eleven against Hartlepool and then came on from the bench after 15 minutes in the defeat against Barnsley at Oakwell.
Yet to make his Premier League debut, after returning from injury his only other appearance was as an unused sub in the FA Cup defeat against Reading at the Madejski in January this year.
Shortly after, Brian Laws took the decision to send Rodriguez out on loan and he agreed a one month move to Barnsley.
Rodriguez is understood to have enjoyed his time at Oakwell and he scored on his debut for them after coming on from the bench late on against Preston.
In total he played in six games for the Tykes but only one of those matches was in the starting eleven with five substitute appearances. Nevertheless he helped Barnsley win four of those games and give them a sniff of the play-offs.
It is understood Burnley boss Brian Laws will now give him a run-out in the reserves game tonight against Everton at the Crown Ground to increase his match sharpness.
The question after that though is whether Laws will keep him at Turf Moor and see if he can fight for a first team place and make his debut in the top flight or whether he thinks another loan spell will be more beneficial.
Speaking to the Official Site on this issue Brian Laws said:
"He`s not had a lot of air time which is a little bit disappointing'
"The plan is to really give him a full work-out this week and play him in the reserves on Thursday when he`ll get a good run-out."
Laws is expected to make a decision on whether to loan out Jay Rod again in the next couple of weeks
"There is always a possibility. I would never dismiss it if it`s necessary and I wouldn`t dismiss it for any player," added the Clarets` chief.
"Jay`s our player and what we`ve got to is make sure we do everything right for him.
"If that means going out for another loan period and it was the right thing to do then we would do that.
"But I see a lot of good talent there and if he stays with us hopefully over the coming weeks he can starts pushing himself towards the team."
