Burnley v Derby County

Continue reading the main story

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is likely to go with the same starting XI for the fifth consecutive game.

Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz and Ashley Barnes (both knee) are the Clarets’ only long-term absentees.

Derby boss Paul Clement could make changes to a side that has failed to claim victory in four league games.

Chris Baird or Ryan Shotton are alternatives in defence, while Jacob Butterfield has a chance of being recalled in midfield.
