INJURY to Danny Ings and Ross Wallace has forced Burnley manager Sean Dyche into two of the three changes he has made to the side which lost to Bolton Wanderers in their lost outing for tonight's visit of Middlesbrough.

Kevin Long has come into the back four to replace David Edgar, who scored the opening goal in the 2-1 defeat at the Reebok.

Brian Stock and Martin Paterson return to the starting line-up for the first time in over a month for sidelined duo Ings and Wallace.

The Clarets are looking to get back to winning ways, after picking up one point from a possible nine.

Middlesbrough defender Andre Bikey returns to take on his old club, with Tony Mowbray's men arriving at Turf Moor with their own agenda following a run of five straight league away defeats.
