1718 burnley chris wood 01 1000x500Burnley will be back in action this Saturday with the visit of Swansea City to Turf Moor and manager Sean Dyche, having again been asked about Everton, has given an update, particularly on Chris Wood who played just 45 minutes as New Zealand went out of the World Cup.

He said: “They (New Zealand) weren’t sure he was ready to start so we’ll catch up with him tomorrow. Our medical team have been in contact and I don’t believe there is anything too major there, a bit of tightness, a bit of soreness, but that’s all we know at this stage.”

Dean Marney got in another game this week, behind closed doors against Oldham at Gawthorpe. “He had a game in the week and I thought it was the best I’ve seen him in the sense of his sharpness and looking more fluid in the way he played and the way he run,” Dyche said. “I think that’s a big marker because it’s a longer term journey for him to come back but he’s going along really well at the moment.

“Nahki (Wells) played in the week, got a minor knock, but that’s all it was and the others came through it well. Jon (Walters) is on the road back. He’s still going well. He’s out on the grass. He’s working actively every day. He’s not back with the group yet but he is going well at the moment.”

Finally asked about his captain and goalkeeper Tom Heaton, he said: “Tom’s a longer term one but he’s going as planned I would say.”
