JOSH Brownhill is back in contention for Burnley ahead of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.

The midfielder has been sidelined for two weeks with a foot injury sustained against Aston Villa - missing four games.

But the 25-year-old has returned to first team training to give manager Sean Dyche a squad boost, along with midfielder Jack Cork and goalkeeper Nick Pope, who both missed Tuesday's FA Cup defeat at home to AFC Bournemouth.

Striker Chris Wood, however, remains doubtful, while Charlie Taylor is described as "touch and go".

Burnley boss Dyche said: "Corky and Popey recovered to train today, that's good news.

"Charlie Taylor is getting fitter but will be touch and go, Robbie Brady is similar but different to Charlie. It's the risk and reward of playing these guys.

"Woody is a doubt for the weekend but Josh Brownhill has settled down. It was a soft tissue injury so we're pleased with that but it's been a bit longer than we thought but it's settling down now so he'd certainly be in with a chance I would say."
