Clarets pair in race to be fit for Derby trip
CHARLIE Austin and Michael Duff will undergo late fitness tests to see if they have recovered from the injuries which kept them out of Wednesday's defeat at Leicester.
Duff complained of an Achilles problem after last Saturday's 5-2 home win over Peterborough United, while top scorer Austin was sidelined after suffering a knock to his hip at the end of Tuesday's training session.
Neither injury is believed to be serious, but the duo will be assessed before manager Eddie Howe picks his squad to face Derby County tomorrow.
Captain Jason Shackell has been struggling with a back problem, but is expected to face his former club tomorrow.
