Arfield and Vokes doubtful
Both Scott Arfield, who missed the game at Everton, and Sam Vokes, who was withdrawn with an injury in that game, are both doubts for the Clarets ahead of this Sunday’s home game against Manchester United.
Arfield has a knee injury with manager Sean Dyche saying: “He’s doing better, but I don’t know if he will be clear this weekend. It’s settling down but it’s a niggle on the back of his knee.”
“Vokesy is touch and go, to be honest,” Dyche added. “He had a tight hamstring at Everton which is why he came off. Andre had been playing but came out last week so he’ll be fresh and we have different options in midfield to consider if we choose to go that way.”
The good news is that Johann Berg Gudmundsson is available although Dyche would have preferred to have given him another development squad game. “I’d like to get him another game behind closed doors, but he’s under consideration, he’s fit and well,” Dyche said.Share this page :
