STEVEN Defour could miss Burnley's Premier League clash with Huddersfield as he attends to a personal issue, while Robbie Brady has suffered a setback on his road to recovery.

Defour played 90 minutes for the Under-23s on Monday, having been on the bench for the first team at Cardiff the day before.

But his involvement against the Terriers at Turf Moor this weekend is up the air, according to Clarets boss Sean Dyche.

"Steven’s good, we’ll see how he is at the weekend. He’s got a personal situation he’s attending to, so we’ll leave him to that for now," he said.

Winger Brady featured for the Under-23s at the start of last week, but has since suffered a hamstring strain that has further delayed his recovery, having not featured competitively since the start of December last year.

He’s missed a few days. He’s got a niggly hamstring injury, it’s often the case when you’ve had a long-term injury, you get all these little niggles," Dyche said.

"It’s nothing too serious, four days here, five days there, but it’s been a few weeks of that. We’re hoping over this international break he gets back to a clean bill of health and a few days training, because he just keeps dropping down with a few little things."

But Ben Gibson's recovery from a hernia operation is going well and he could play for the Under-23s during the international break.

"Ben’s going well, I would expect if everything continues to go well that during the international window we might get him into a reserve game. So far it’s looking promising," Dyche added.
