TEAM NEWS: Burnley v Huddersfield

BURNLEY begin tonight's home game with Huddersfield Town with the side which started the second half at Brighton.

Manager Sean Dyche was impressed with his players' response to going a goal down on the south coast at the weekend.

And although the Clarets could not avoid a 1-0 defeat at the AMEX Stadium, Dyche was encouraged that they at least restricted Brighton to just one shot on target, while creating chances themselves.

Danny Ings returns to the starting line-up after missing last Tuesday's goalless home draw with Middlesbrough because of a minor hamstring strain.

Junior Stanislas drops to the bench, while Dane Richards is named among the substitutes at the expense of Luke O'Neill.

Huddersfield arrive at Turf Moor bidding to arrest a run of just one Championship win in their last 17 games.

BURNLEY: Lee Grant; Kieran Trippier, Kevin Long, Jason Shackell, Danny Lafferty; Dean Marney, Brian Stock, Chris McCann; Danny Ings, Charlie Austin, Keith Treacy.

Subs: Brian Jensen, Dane Richards, David Edgar, Marvin Bartley, Junior Stanislas, Sam Vokes, Martin Paterson. HUDDERSFIELD: Alex Smithies, Sean Scannell, Theo Robinson, Peter Clarke, Neil Danns, Oscar Gobern, Calum Woods, Antony Gerrard, Adam Clayton, James Vaughan, Paul Dixon.

Subs: Ian Bennett, Joel Lynch, Oliver Norwood, Scott Arfield, Lee Novak, Jack Hunt, Alan Lee.
