Treacy: Doubtful for Burnley

Treacy: Doubtful for Burnley

Burnley boss Eddie Howe could be without wingers Keith Treacy and Junior Stanislas.

Summer signing Treacy missed Saturday's 1-1 draw with Southampton with a hamstring injury and is rated as doubtful.

Former West Ham player Stanislas (hamstring) was forced to come off after 73 minutes in that game.

Dean Marney made his return from a stomach injury to replace Stanislas and could start in his absence.

Ben Mee (head) was named as a substitute at the weekend and will again be in contention.

Goalkeeper Brian Jensen again misses out because of a groin strain.

Martin Paterson (thigh) remains a long-term absentee, as does fellow striker Danny Ings and defender Michael Duff (both knee).

Nottingham Forest boss Steve McClaren will select from an unchanged squad.

The Reds incurred no new problems in beating Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening but five key players still remain unavailable.

Chris Cohen, Garath McCleary and Dexter Blackstock are sidelined by knee injuries while George Boateng and Paul Anderson are nursing ankle and hamstring problems respectively.

Clint Hill made his full debut against the Hornets following his arrival on loan from QPR and he will probably keep his place in the side.

However, McClaren has options should he wish to make changes, with midfielders Andy Reid and Radoslaw Majewski and strikers Matt Derbyshire and Marcus Tudgay among those players available for recalls.
