TEAM NEWS: Burnley v Watford

First published in Sport

KEVIN Long makes his full debut for Burnley this afternoon, as the Clarets take on manager Sean Dyche's old club Watford.

The defender's inclusion in the side, for the suspended Michael Duff, is one of three changes to the team which lost at Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Brian Stock drops to the bench, with David Edgar expected to replace him in a defensive midfield role, while a one-match ban for Chris McCann has opened the door for Danny Ings to make his first start of the season.

Keith Treacy is named in the squad for only the second time in the Championship this season.

BURNLEY: Lee Grant, Daniel Lafferty, Jason Shackell, Kevin Long, Kieran Trippier, David Edgar, Dean Marney, Danny Ings, Ross Wallace, Martin Paterson, Charlie Austin.

Subs: Brian Jensen, Sam Vokes, Junior Stanislas, Marvin Bartley, Joseph Mills, Keith Treacy, Brian Stock.

WATFORD: Manuel Almunia, Fitz Hall, Jonathan Hogg, Troy Deeney, Daniel Pudil, Almen Abdi, Marco Cassetti, Tommie Hoban, Alex Geijo, Nathaniel Chalobah, Joel Ekstrand.

Subs: Nueton, Mark Yeates, Steve Beleck, Matej Vydra. Ikechi Anya, Jack Bonham, Cristian Battocchio.
