Duff to play but Trippier a doubt for Clarets test with Rovers
7:37am Monday 24th March 2014 in Football
MICHAEL Duff is expected to be available for tomorrow night’s game with Doncaster Rovers, despite his stoppage time exit against Charlton.
The defender was replaced late on by Kevin Long, just before Michael Kightly's shot was deflected in to complete a 3-0 win.
But manager Sean Dyche said: “It was a bit of cramp. With the game being dead by then it was precautionary.”
The Burnley boss is also encouraged by the progress Kieran Trippier is making in his recovery from a minor hamstring muscle tear, although tomorrow’s game will come too soon for the right back.
“It’s a minor one but with hamstrings we have to be careful, so we’ll see how the days go,” said Dyche.
“It’s settled nicely already but we want to make sure.”
