The Clarets are left with the league to focus on for the rest of this season having gone down 1-0 at Barnsley in the FA Cup on Saturday.

A bright spot for Dyche's men in that Oakwell reverse was the debut of Jamaican international winger Richards, who agreed a move from Major League Soccer outfit Vancouver Whitecaps during Eddie Howe's time in charge at Turf Moor.

Nevertheless, Dyche is relishing the prospect of integrating the 29-year-old into his first-team plans.

"He's shown directness and that can be a real weapon in football," the Burnley boss told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"We felt Saturday's game needed that burst of energy down the right-hand side to stretch the pitch.

"We wanted to try to get him an introduction. We got that and he looked effervescent when he came on and stretched the pitch for us, and got a little chance and affected things.

"It's early days yet but we'll see how it goes."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
