New Boys In Gaffer's Thoughts For Hull

8 September 2016

Burnley will again be without Ashley Barnes for the visit of Hull City.

The striker still has a niggly hamstring injury that has ruled him out since the start of the Premier League season.

However, Dyche revealed that new striker Patrick Bamford and record signing Jeff Hendrick will come into his thoughts as the Clarets look to follow up the win over Liverpool at Turf Moor.

The gaffer revealed: “Barnesy has a slight niggle and we are having to be careful with that, but everyone else is well.

“Jeff has literally come in on Thursday after having an up-and-and-down pre-season with coming back late from the Euros, then getting injured and then the move here.

“We will be looking forward to seeing how he settles into the group.

“Patrick hasn’t played as much first team football at Chelsea, but he’s been playing football nonetheless, so he is generally fit.

“It’s important to get them to know how we work, but they will be in the thinking.

“I have a team in my own mind, but they are fit and well and adapting to what we do.”

A full preview of the Hull City game will follow on Friday.
