Football - Ings can only get better

Danny Ings could return to the Burnley squad when Sean Dyche's men make the long trip to play-off chasing Brighton in the npower Championship.

Ings missed Tuesday night's goalless draw with Middlesbrough due to a hamstring complaint but the former Bournemouth forward is hopeful of making a recovery in time for the Amex Stadium encounter.

Winger Ross Wallace (knee) and Michael Duff (calf) are expected to remain on the sidelines, with Kevin Long well placed to continue in the latter's absence at centre-back having made his first appearance for two months against Boro.

Ben Mee is back in training following medial knee ligament damage but the former Manchester City defender is not yet match fit.

Burnley retain play-off ambitions of their own but two draws and as many losses from their last four games leave them seven points off the pace in 12th.
