Gudmundsson and Defour ruled out of Hull game
Burnley will be without both Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Steven Defour for Saturday’s Premier League game against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Defour has been out since coming off with a hamstring injury in the home win against Leicester at the end of January. He’s improving but won’t be ready with manager Sean Dyche reporting: “Steven is back on the grass, and will be building that up over the next week, but he won’t be right for this weekend.”
Of Gudmundsson (pictured), who was forced off after twenty minutes of last week’s cup tie against Lincoln, the news is a little better than some feared with suggestions earlier in the week that it could be another long term injury.
Dyche removed those concerns and said: “It’s unlikely Johann will be fit for the weekend, it’s nothing too drastic, but he opened up the medial knee ligament. It wasn’t a great challenge on him, and he strained the ligament.”Share this page :
