BRIAN Jensen could be in line for a first team recall after starting for the reserves last night.

The long-serving Burnley goalkeeper, who made 60 consecutive appearances in the promotion-winning season of 2008/09, hasn’t featured since losing his place to summer signing Lee Grant in October.

But after a run of three defeats in four games sucked the momentum out of their play-off push, Clarets boss Eddie Howe could be considering a change for Saturday’s trip to Leicester City.

Howe, who also ran the rule over defender David Edgar last night, gave his backing to former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Grant after points were dropped at home to Millwall and Coventry last month.

But he didn’t rule out assessing the situation if the need arose.

“He (Grant) is the number one at the moment because he’s got the shirt,” said the Clarets manager ahead of the game at Bristol City almost three weeks ago.

“I have to say that I think Lee has been very consistent and has been a very good performer for us.

“In the Hull game, he made some fantastic saves for us. He has the shirt and he has performed consistently.

“No-one is guaranteed a starting place. Everyone’s place is reviewed after every game, like it has to be and there is competition for places.

“But that’s what you want. At every football club you want people fighting for the shirt.”
