Marney back in training
Burnley travel to Everton this Sunday and will, as we have in every game since mid-January, be without Dean Marney who suffered a cruciate ligament injury at Arsenal.
But there was good news about him this afternoon when Sean Dyche faced the media ahead of our second trip to Merseyside in two weeks.
He confirmed that Jon Walters will again be out of the reckoning. He said a specialist had taken a look at his knee and that it needs to settle down which will take a bit of time. Asked if there was any timescale on a potential return, he said: “Not at the moment, it’s early phase of a knee, he’ shad a history of that so we’re just letting it calm down.”
The good news came with reports on the Marney and Nahki Wells injuries. Dyche said: “Nahki Wells is making good progress, he’s not ready yet but he’s back in with the team training, as is Dean Marney. We’ll build on their fitness and at some point they’ll be added into games.”
He said that both could feature in under-23 games in the next couple of weeks. The next two games in the Professional Development League come a week on Monday and the following Friday, the first at home (Curzon Ashton) against Leeds and the second at Nottingham Forest.Share this page :
