Sean Dyche reveals a decision on James Tarkowski will be made on Friday after the defender sustained a groin injury in the win at Cardiff.
The Burnley centre-back has been selected for the Three Lions upcoming Nations League fixtures against Croatia and Spain, but Dyche admits there are no guarantees over his fitness. "If he’s clear he’ll go away, if he’s not he won’t," he said. "Gareth and his staff are aware that he’s had a minor situation that we’re hoping will settle down, but he’s not definitely clear." Tarkowski took part in a light session outside on Thursday, and according to the club’s official Twitter feed, he is rated as "touch and go." If he does miss out, then Kevin Long will come into the side with Ben Gibson [hernia] also side-lined. Robbie Brady has a "slight" hamstring strain and won’t be involved but Dyche is hoping to have the midfielder back during the break. "He is close, but we have to remember he hasn't played a full 90 minutes since the [knee] injury [10 months ago]." Oct 5 - 5:48 AM
