With Burnley struggling in recent games and with news that Danny Fox will now face a two match ban following a tenth yellow card picked up in the Bristol City game at Ashton Gate on Saturday, could Eddie Howe be tempted to enter the loan market again?
Not so long ago he decided to bring in striker Nathan Delfouneso on loan from Aston Villa to bolster our attack with Austin, Paterson and Thompson now all recovering from injury.
Only last week the gaffer said:
"We`ve always got half an eye on the loan market and what players are available
"We`re definitely not closed off to that idea but there`s no absolute panic in terms of bringing a body in."
Could the poor performance at Bristol and the loss of Fox have changed that perception in anyway? Brian Easton will of course be hoping there will be no panic over the left back spot and that he will be given a chance to play in that role again at least in the next two games whilst Fox sits out his suspension.
But what about the other perceived areas of weakness especially in the centre of defence and to some extent in midfield? There may even be a case of bringing in another striker. Certainly Iwelumo and even the new boy, Delfouneso have not exactly found their scoring touch yet.
Howe was asked again about the loan situation after the Bristol game and on Clarets Player he has again not ruled out the possibility providing the right type of player is available. We can only begin to wonder what the right sort of player will be and in what sort of role.
Either way he will need to quickly decide with the loan window closing on the 24th March.
