CHARLIE Taylor has given manager Sean Dyche a boost ahead of tomorrow's trip to Liverpool and is back in contention to face the champions.

The left back has spent three weeks on the sidelines, missing three games, since suffering a hamstring strain during the first half of the win over Sheffield United on December 29.

But the 27-year-old is now fully fit and available for the trip to Anfield.

"He's certainly back in contention. He's another one we gave an extra few days going from the last game which has allowed him an increased level of fitness and injury free kind of fitness. He's definitely back in the thinking," said the Burnley boss.

Dwight McNeil is expected to return to the line-up after coming off the bench in the last two games having recovered from his own injury lay-off, while Jack Cork made his comeback after a lengthy absence with an ankle injury in the FA Cup win over MK Dons.

"Dwight obviously has been coming back anyway, Corky is getting more (bounce) games and has had a game (in the FA Cup against MK Dons), which is good, and then there are longer (term) ones like Dale Stephens," said Dyche.

"There are a number of players who are on that edge of being truly fit, but the hardest challenge of all is getting them completely Premier League fit because that often comes when you play."
