Burnley boss Sean Dyche will run the rule over a host of injury concerns before Barnsley's visit to Turf Moor in the npower Championship.

The Clarets claimed their first win in seven matches at the weekend when a spectacular strike from top scorer Charlie Austin proved enough to see off Charlton.

Alex Kacaniklic made his debut at the Valley having joined on loan from Fulham, but Dyche is otherwise short in midfield as doubts remain over Ross Wallace (knee), Chris McCann (hamstring) and Dean Marney (calf).

If the injury situation does not alter, Marvin Bartley and David Edgar are poised to team up once more in the engine room.

Ben Mee is closing in on a return to fitness following medial knee ligament damage and fellow defender Michael Duff is still struggling with a calf complaint.
