Fit-again frontman Danny Ings could face Seagulls
Danny Ings could be back to increase the Clarets’ attacking options at Brighton on Saturday after recovering from a hamstring injury.
Ings missed Burnley’s mid-week draw against Middlesbrough when Sean Dyche’s men drew a blank in front of goal for the first time in the Championship in 2013.
But the 20-year-old has responded well to treatment and looks set to be on the team coach heading for the south coast on Friday.
“Ingsy has had a really good few days so we are expecting him to be back in contention,” confirmed Dyche.
However, Ross Wallace, whose input was also missed against Boro as he nursed a knee injury, will be absent for the trip to face a Brighton side sitting just a place outside the play-off zone.
“It might come a bit too quick for him and it’s still too quick for Duffo,” added the Burnley boss.
“Ben Mee has had a good week but it’s a longer term programme for him. The injury is fine but they (phsyio and conditioning staff) are planning to get him back to full fitness.”
Brighton are set to welcome back striker Ashley Barnes after a three-match ban but will be without midfielder Liam Bridcutt, who starts a two-match suspension.
