The 21-year-old striker, who has 25 goals this term, came off with the ligament injury against Birmingham and missed just his second game of the season against Leeds on Saturday.

He was named Championship Player of the Year at the Football League Awards 24 hours later and the striker revealed that his ankle was "okay" and that he would see a specialist on Wednesday.

Boss Sean Dyche confirmed the news had been largely positive and Ings is expected to play again this season, although with seven of their final 10 games coming in the next month, he could miss the majority of their promotion push.

The Clarets do hold a 10-point advantage in second place, though, so even this setback is unlikely to prevent Dyche's men from achieving promotion to the Premier League.

Dyche said: "It's still going to be a bit of time, but not what we thought. It's a pretty straight forward type of ligament injury.

"It's good news so we're happy with that and Danny is as well.

"There's nothing sinister, that's the main thing, nothing that can't be dealt with.

"Obviously the initial period will be a couple of weeks until it settles down. It's not one where it could go beyond that, we don't think.

"There's no exact time-frame but it'll be sooner rather than later. That's what we're hoping and that's what the specialist suggested."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
