TEAM NEWS: Burnley v Wolves
2:34pm Saturday 3rd November 2012 in Sport
SEAN Dyche makes his debut as Burnley boss at Turf Moor this afternoon, against Wolves.
The former Watford manager, who succeeds Eddie Howe at the Clarets' helm, has made three changes from the side which suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at Cardiff City last weekend.
Dyche was a spectator in the stands at the Cardiff City Stadium, as a guest of Malky McKay at the time, and watched Burnley slip to a 4-0 defeat.
The 41-year-old, who was confirmed as the new Burnley boss on Tuesday, and officially unveiled to the media on Thursday, has brought David Edgar back into the side.
The Canadian is expected to line up in a three-man midfield, with Ben Mee the only change to last weekend's back four, following suspension.
Ross Wallace also comes back into the side, with Junior Stanislas dropping to the bench.
Midfielder Chris McCann is sidelined with an injury believed to have been picked up in training.
Meanwhile, there will be a minute's silence before the game in memory of Clarets legend John Connelly, who died last week aged 74.
Former players and team-mates have been invited to stand between the two dug-outs to pay their respects.
They are: Jimmy Robson, Colin Williamson, Brian Pilkington, Trevor Meredith, Willie Irvine, Jimmy McIlroy, Andy Lochhead, Les Latcham, Freddie Smith.
BURNLEY: Lee Grant; Keiran Trippier, Michael Duff, Jason Shackell, Ben Mee; David Edgar, Brian Stock, Dean Marney; Ross Wallace, Charlie Austin, Martin Paterson.
