Stock Misses Bolton Clash

10 February 2014

Burnley will be almost at full strength for Tuesday’ night’s derby away at Bolton Wanderers.

The Clarets have just Brian Stock on the sidelines following a back injury sustained by the midfielder that will keep him out for an indeterminable amount of time.

The former Doncaster Rovers midfielder has started just three games this season and last appeared as a substitute at Huddersfield on New Year’s Day.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “We’re looking good for Tuesday night. 

“We only have Brian missing because he picked up a twisted back in training last week.

“We have had that scanned and it’s nothing too sinister or irregular, but it’s something that is holding him back at the moment.

“We’ll monitor that wisely, but he won’t be involved at Bolton, I am sure of that and we’re not too sure how long he’ll be out. 

“It’s settling down, which is good, but he’s the only major injury we have at the moment. 

“The rest are fit and well.”

The Clarets head to The Reebok looking to keep the pressure on the leading pack. 

And with over 2,000 travelling fans, Dyche knows his side will not lack vocal support in the latest Lancashire derby.

He added: “The derbies are never ending, but I am getting used to it now and it’s another great game. 

“But it’s important not to over-think another derby and another team that will be prepared and ready to win a game, so we have too and try to deliver everything we can in order to win.

“There are no easy games in the Championship and everyone is tough. 

“We know that, but the mentality from our group has been excellent, so we go again.”

Tickets for the Bolton game go off sale at 1pm at Turf Moor on Tuesday. And Clarets fans can pay on the night, from turnstile G, with admission prices remaining the same.
