Lowton Set For Return

27 August 2015

Matt Lowton is set for a return to action during the international break.

And boss Sean Dyche has also revealed that long-term injured duo Dean Marney and Kevin Long have now resumed full training with the first team as they near the end of their rehabilitation.

Lowton has yet to start a competitive game for the Clarets after a shin injury sustained in pre-season.

But the former Aston Villa defender is pencilled in for a game next week as he closes in on a return to action.

Dyche said: “We are hopeful of getting Matt a game next week. He has been out five weeks now and he just needs that game. But he’s been training with us all week and feeling no ill effects.

“He is looking clear at the moment, so we’ll get him that game and user the international break wisely to get him topped up.”

Meanwhile, Marney and Long may not be too far behind as they continue to step-up their rehabilitation.

Dyche explained: “Dean and Kevin have been out long-term, but they are now actively back training with the first team and they are getting closer to stepping back out on to the pitch.

“Not the first team, I must explain, but the process of getting back playing.

“They have been training with us all the time now, which is great and they are going on nicely.

“They are coming to the end of their rehab now, on their way back to the first team.

Elsewhere, midfielder Fredrik Ulvestad remains sidelined with the ankle injury he sustained against Bradford City in the Clarets final pre-season game.
