Burnley boss Sean Dyche is likely to be forced to make a change to his starting line-up for the first time in four matches in the Capital One Cup tie against Nottingham Forest.

The in-form Clarets have lined up with the same XI for each of their three previous contests and have taken seven points in that time to propel themselves into second in the Sky Bet Championship table.

However, midfielder David Jones was withdrawn in the second half of the 2-1 win over Leeds at the weekend after suffering a cut to his ankle in a challenge with Dominic Poleon.

Dyche told the media on Monday that Jones was therefore unlikely to feature, meaning he would join winger Ross Wallace (knee) on the sidelines.
