AARON Lennon is over a sickness bug and will be part of the Burnley squad for the trip to West Ham, while Sean Dyche will leave it late to decide on the fitness of Jack Cork.

The midfielder ended his run of playing every Premier League minute since his move from Swansea City last weekend, when he came off early against Chelsea with an ankle injury.

But Cork is hopeful of being fit and Dyche will give him every chance to start at the London Stadium.

"Corky we’re hopeful on, we’ll find out more on Friday, he’s had a couple of down days to let it settle," said Dyche. Lennon is over his sickness, but a few other members of the squad have been struck down with a 24 hour bug.

And centre back Ben Gibson will miss out in the capital, with the £15million defender set to see a specialist to make sure his hernia operation was successful.

"There’s been a little bit of sickness knocking around, Aaron Lennon is well again now, but a couple of the other lads have had a bit of that, only the 24-hour type," he said.

"Azza was quite poorly for a couple of days, but the other lads have had 24-hour things so I’m pretty sure they’ll be fine."

Dyche is also pleased with Nick Pope's progress as he steps up training following his dislocated shoulder.

"Popey is doing really well, not as in training with us yet, but handling, on the grass, moving forwards towards the moment when you start goalkeeping in earnest - diving, landing etc," the Clarets chief said.
