TEAM NEWS: Millwall v Burnley

First published in Football

BURNLEY go in search of a third straight Championship win of 2013 at Millwall this afternoon, with the added incentive of continuing Sean Dyche's personal 100 per cent record against his old club.

The Clarets boss has won 10 and draw one of his last 11 meetings with the Lions, as a player, coach and manager.

Chris McCann returns to the side following a hamstring injury and a bout of tendonitis.

David Edgar, who covered for the suspended Brian Stock last weekend, retains his place in the side but drops into defence as Michael Duff is ruled out through injury.

With Kevin Long also ruled out of the squad as a result of an ankle knock, development squad defender Tom Anderson is named among the substitutes following a successful loan spell with Barrow.

Martin Paterson returns to the squad following a hamstring injury, while Brian Stock returns to the bench after serving a one-match ban.

Jack Smith starts at left back as Shane Lowry begins a two-match ban for Millwall, who hand a home debut to Martyn Woolford.

Nathan Tyson, who joined the Lions from Derby County this week, starts on the bench.

BURNLEY: Lee Grant: Kieran Trippier, David Edgar, Jason Shackell, Danny Lafferty; Ross Wallace, Dean Marney, Chris McCann; Junior Stanislas; Danny Ings; Sam Vokes.

Subs: Brian Jensen, Martin Paterson, Marvin Bartley, Luke O'Neill, Brian Stock, Keith Treacy, Tom Anderson.
