CHRIS Wood could still feature in Burnley's Europa League tie at Aberdeen on Thursday, despite missing the Clarets' 3-2 win at Preston tonight.

Sean Dyche revealed that the record signing missed out at Deepdale due to a minor hip problem, but he could be fit enough to play at Pittodrie later this week.

"Woody’s got a chance. It was just a precaution tonight, he got a slight feel in his hip, so it’s purely a precaution," said Dyche.

Ashley Barnes again missed out due to blisters, while Robbie Brady didn't feature having only come through his first 45 minutes since a serious knee injury last December on Friday night.

Both could be involved against the Scottish Premiership runners-up, but Steven Defour won't make it as he continues to battle a calf injury.

"Barnesy has an outside chance (for Thursday), he is doing okay, we’re just being careful with him," said Dyche.

"Robbie Brady is doing well - we deliberately took him out of this game, no injury, just to get his map right in his build up.

"If you’ve been out a long time, if it was a normal pre-season, you’d have a bit of a game, week’s training, but this is too quick, so we took him out to timeline it properly.

"We’d have to be careful with him, the longer view is more important, not one game.

"Steven won’t be ready, he isn’t on the grass yet, but it’s nothing serious, it’s settling down."
