Burnley v Southampton: match preview

·1-min read

Both Burnley and Southampton are looking for their first points of the season and both will be looking to take something from this game to show they are capable of moving up the table. With two games played Southampton’s disappointing return has been the more surprising, but though Burnley showed characteristic feistiness in going down 4-2 at Leicester last week Sean Dyche’s repeated warnings about the shallowness of the squad seem to be coming to pass. Even though Ashley Barnes is on the verge of a return, Burnley cannot afford any more injuries. Paul Wilson
