Clarets boss Stan Ternent will limit the changes for tonight's trip to Stockport as he gives his players the chance to make amends for their Fratton Park flop.

Ternent admitted his side was below par in losing 2-0 to Portsmouth and is looking for an instant improvement against relegation-threatened County.

He said: "They're scrapping for their lives, we want to get as many points on the board as we possibly can and it's a derby match so there's pride at stake.

"And it also gives us a chance to perform to how the players are capable.

"I'm pleased that there's a game so quickly after Saturday because the performance wasn't acceptable, which is very rare for a Burnley side.

"A few of the players need to put the record straight from Saturday and they will be given the opportunity to do that."

Ternent, who will have to replace the banned Gordon Armstrong and possibly injured winger Glen Little, is also keen to put on an improved show for the supporters who made the long trip to the south coast.

He added: "We have a responsibility to people. I know a lot of Clarets fans went down on Friday and came back on Sunday and spent some dough on it and were looking forward to a nice weekend.

"Losing is never easy, but it's how. On Saturday we had too many players below the standards they set themselves."

Tenth-placed Burnley haven't tasted victory on their travels since October but Ternent insisted: "I don't think the away form's that bad. They keep pointing out that we haven't won for such a long time, but we have got 15 points away from home with seven matches to play.

"It will be interesting to see how many sides have got more than 15 away from home."
