The Clarets are away to new Championship boys, Scunthorpe today and will be hoping to maintain their 100% winning start to the season so far after defeating the Baggies in last week's season openner at Turf Moor followed by the midweek victory away to Grimsby in the Carling Cup.
It has been an hectic week for the Clarets in the area of defence with two players coming into the Club, David Unsworth and Clarke Carlisle plus one departing, Wayne Thomas.
Both new boys could be given their League debuts today, especially if Caldwell has still not recovered from his hamstring injury. News however filtering around Burnley is that Caldwell will be available.
The gaffer rung the changes for the Carling Cup match, with some suggesting he basically put out the reserve team in the first half. It is expected that Gray and Blake will start as the strike pair this time with Akinbiyi and Lafferty returning to the bench.
On the Carlisle signing, SC said:
'I have acted swiftly because with our situation with defenders we have been light from the word go.Clarke is a big, strong lad who is athletic and a good leader.
'He is also a charming, sensible young man who is 27 years of age, which keeps the age of the squad down.
'He has been through quite a lot in his career, but he has always been a bit of a pain whenever we have had to play against him and from what I have seen I don't have any doubts that he will be a good acquisition to our squad once he has settled in.'
Scunthorpe could be without Izzy Iriekpen (groin) although fellow defender Marcus Williams will be included in the squad after recovering from a knock.
Andy Butler could replace Iriekpen, while keeper Joe Murphy may be set for a return.
Jonathan Forte, the former Blades striker brought in to replace hotshot Billy Sharp
We are waiting to see the back four line-up and whether Carlisle and Unsworth will feature. No announcements yet or clues from the Club. We can expect to see Carlisle start with Unsworth on the bench if Caldwell is fit.
Clarke Carlisle if he plays, the first chance for Clarets fans to rate our new player
Who can forget 6th May 2000 and the Little winning goal? The day that secured promotion for the Clarets with a 2-1 away win
Come on you Clarets, 2-0 away win on the cards!
