With the Clarets riding high in the Championship table, there is a desire to ensure that they kick on from this point.

Additions would aid that quest, with injuries stretching Dyche's squad to the full.

He is hoping for positive news on the transfer front in the near future, with targets having been identified.

One approach for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Ashley Barnes has already been knocked back, but speculation suggests that an improved offer is in the pipeline.

On his recruitment plans, Dyche said in the Lancashire Telegraph: "There are a number of irons in fires.

"There's an order of business because we haven't just got the finance to throw it at six or seven, so we'll see how the next few days develop."

Among those currently on the sidelines for Burnley are Michael Kightly, Ben Mee and Michael Duff, but Dyche is confident none of that trio are nursing long-term problems.

He said: "We've still got knocks. Kightly has had a knock, Duff had a couple of knocks that we need to get on top of.

"The stretched side of the squad is an obvious one. It allows us to give some of the younger ones a feel of it but we need those players back as quick as possible.

"We're hopeful they're not too serious. Ben had a thigh problem but we're happy that's settling down quickly."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
