BRIAN Stock is the only doubt for Burnley boss Sean Dyche ahead of tomorrow night's clash with Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium.

The midfielder was sidelined by a back injury for Saturday's visit of Millwall, which resulted in a comprehensive 3-1 win for the Clarets.

But Dyche is hopeful it is not a serious problem for the former Bournemouth and Doncaster man.

However, he was reluctant to put a timescale on Stock's return.

"It wasn't a knock but a twist to his back. We've had it checked out and we don't think it's anything you sinister but it's holding him back at the moment and has done for the last week or so," he said.

"We're hopeful it's not too serious but it will keep him out ongoing until we know more at the moment."

Other than that, the Clarets have a clean bill of health.

"Everyone's come through the weekend well and they're raring to go," Dyche added.

"We're pretty clear and we're pleased with that."
