6th November 2007
The Clarets face Hull City at Turf Moor on Tuesday night and will be looking to consolidate with a win after their encouraging performance against the Blades away last Saturday. Hull will be smarting after their 2-0 defeat at lowly QPR on Saturday and they now find themselves in 15th place on 16 points.
The Clarets are now 13th on 18 points but crucially are still well within site of the play offs, with the sixth placed club,Wolves on 22 points having played one more game than the lads.
The injury worries seem to be mounting up in the back four but at least in Alexander and Unsworth we have very able and experienced players with Unsworth in particular showing just how professional he can be after an excellent performance last Saturday fully deserving the man of the match award.
With Caldwell sidelined for now five weeks and Duff for a season, it will be a worry that Jordan twisted his ankle and had to be substituted in the second half at Bramall Lane. However, Jordan has been a little underpar recently and Harley may now have the opportunity to shine anyway and could retain his place after coming on from the bench.
As far as we aware, there are no other injury concerns apart from Berisha of course,who is out for a season along with Duff having both suffered cruciate ligament damage.
We can expect therefore a similar sixteen to those named in Blades game depending on whether Jordan is fit or not:
Burnley: Kiraly, Alexander, Carlisle, Unsworth, Harley or Jordan, Elliott, McCann, Spicer, Lafferty, Gray, Blake.
Subs: Harley or Jordan, J O'Connor, Akinbiyi, Jensen, Mahon
Steve had this to say about the injury to Jordan:
"He damaged his ankle and then went over on it again.
"Anyone who's had an ankle problem, you go over on it, you come back and then you go over it again," said Cotterill.
"Stephen Jordan's ankle probably won't get better until the start of next season when he's had a summer rest on it.
"We just hope he doesn't go over on it too much."
Jordan looks to have recovered but will Harley take his place? Unsworth will definitely be in the team covering for the injured skipper,Caldwell
Most impressive against Sheffield United without scoring. Time to get a goal or two.
Hull midfielder Bryan Hughes faces a late fitness test following a groin injury in training last week.
Striker Caleb Folan has a foot problem and looks unlikely to feature.
Nicky Featherstone and Stephen McPhee though might get chamce to impress
Still a danger and our defence better be alert
A 2-0 victory just over a year ago now at Turf Moor with Duff and Gifton Noel-Williams getting the goals
2-0 Clarets if we cant tonk them
Leicester City away at the Walkers on Saturday 10th November @ 3pm
