Burnley the latest gossip

Come on Burnley

 

Championship: Burnley v Wigan team news

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is again expected to select from an unchanged squad for Easter Monday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Wigan at Turf Moor.

The Clarets can secure promotion back to the Premier League if they beat the Latics and Derby slip up at home to relegation-threatened Barnsley.

Should Derby emerge victorious, then Burnley's return to the top flight will once again be delayed irrespective of their result.

Striker Sam Vokes is the only player on Burnley's injury list after a cruciate ligament injury last month spelled the end for his season.

Wigan midfielder Roger Espinoza, meanwhile, is expected to play again after making a surprise comeback in Friday's home win against Reading.

Espinoza won special praise from boss Uwe Rosler for making an instant impact following a five-week lay-off with a hernia problem and is likely to retain his place.

Goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi replaced Scott Carson against the Royals and Rosler must decide who to start with, while defender Rob Kiernan is pushing for a recall.

Midfielders Ben Watson (broken leg) and Chris McCann (knee) remain long-term absentees as the Latics bid to consolidate their play-off place.
