BURNLEY hope to have Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady available for Saturday's Premier League clash with Southampton but Steven Defour and Matt Lowton remain unavailable.

The Clarets could hand new signing Peter Crouch a debut against one of his former clubs and Dyche is hoping that Burnley's injury crisis is clearing up.

"I think Johann and Robbie have a chance to come back into the thinking, which is another positive, Steven Defour probably not, we're beginning to get bodies back again, and hopefully for the longer term, so we'll just have to wait and see.

"Matt Lowton is touch and go, I don't think he'll make it, but he has a good chance after that."

On whether 38-year-old Crouch would be thrust straight into the squad having joined on deadline day, Dyche said: "We'll see, I know he's been involved, so therefore he's fit and well, we'll give him a chance to come in and join in (training today), and take it from there."
