CHRIS Wood is back in contention for Burnley this weekend after shaking off his jet lag and a minor hamstring injury.

The striker only arrived back from international duty with New Zealand a little over 24 hours before the Clarets' victory over Swansea last weekend.

He was only used off the bench by the All Whites in their World Cup play-off with Peru, but Dyche is happy with his fitness and the record signing will be back in the squad for Saturday's Turf Moor clash with Arsenal.

Dyche also provided updates on the fitness of Dean Marney, who came through another 90 minutes on Monday night for the Under-23s, Jon Walters and Tom Heaton.

"Chris Wood has had a good week with us, he’s definitely available for selection," the Clarets chief said.

"Dean Marney and Jon Walters are getting fitter and stronger all the time. Jon has been on the grass for a couple of weeks just making sure he’s going in the right direction.

"Tom Heaton is moving on now, which is good. It’s longer term but it’s moving forwards.

"Deano is doing great, he’s in front of the timescales. I spoke to him this week about bearing in mind that he is in front of the timescales so don’t be in a crazy rush to get back. He’s training with us full on all the time now.

"Jon is a step behind that. He’s been training with the physio’s but he’s just beginning to join in with warm-ups and get himself back into the group again."
