Football - Dyche waits on duo

Burnley boss Sean Dyche will assess the fitness of Danny Lafferty and Brian Stock ahead of Derby's visit to Turf Moor.

Unspecified injuries ruled both men out of Saturday's 2-2 at Birmingham, with Stock missing out on the Clarets' matchday squad for the first time since joining from Doncaster in the summer.

Joseph Mills came in for Lafferty at left-back, where Ben Mee (medial knee ligament) will not return until the new year.

Danny Ings is expected to make a third consecutive start in attack having netted his first goal of the season at St Andrew's and having apparently put serious knee injury problems behind him.

Burnley are without a win in five games since beating Hull 1-0 on November 24, drawing four of those matches.
