The right-back served a one-match ban during Saturday's 3-0 home win over Leicester following his red card in the 1-1 draw at Ipswich.

Right-back Tyrone Mears returned to the side at the weekend and will hope to keep his place as the Clarets seek to progress.

Defender Michael Duff remains sidelined with a slight calf tear and midfielder Chris McCann is a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

But Laws has no other concerns and is happy with the competition for places within his promotion-chasing squad.

He said: "If opportunities arise, it's up to players to grab them."
