Dean Marney returns to the Clarets’ midfield as Burnley bid to end 33 years of hurt at a sold-out Turf Moor.


Marney’s return from a one-match ban is the only change made by boss Sean Dyche as the Clarets look for their first win over Blackburn Rovers in nine attempts stretching back to 1979.

Blackburn recall Mort Gamst-Pedersen and Colin Kazim Richards as they bid to avoid a third straight defeat and prevent Burnley going above them in the Championship table.

And David Dunn returns from an injury absence to take his place on Rovers’ bench.

Burnley: Grant, Trippier, Mee, Duff, Shackell, Stock, Marney, McCann, Austin, Paterson, Wallace. Subs: Vokes, Edgar, Ings, Lafferty, Bartley, Stanislas, Jensen.

Blackburn Rovers: Robinson, Henley, Martin Olsson, Hanley, Dann, Lowe, Murphy, Formica, Rhodes, Kazim-Richards, Pedersen. Subs: Givet, Dunn, Markus Olsson, Rochina, King, Vukevic, Kean.

Referee: Lee Mason
