Michael Duff: Awaiting the results of the scan on his calf injury

Michael Duff: Awaiting the results of the scan on his calf injury

Duff missed the games against Millwall and Birmingham with a hamstring problem, only to return at Peterborough last week and suffer a calf injury which ruled him out of Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Bolton.

And, pending the results of a scan on Monday, the 35-year-old is likely to sit out the home games against Huddersfield and Middlesbrough, with his chances of returning for the trip to Brighton also in doubt.

"We are hopeful that it will be two to three weeks," Dyche told the club's official website.

"We will find out more from the scan, but he might be a few weeks or certainly a couple.

"We will see how it settles down, but he has been an important player for us and has done very well."

Northern Ireland international Duff has played a key role under Dyche, featuring in the side on six of the seven occasions the Clarets have kept a clean sheet since the ex-Watford boss took charge at the end of October.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
