Bristol City will be without defensive duo Louis Carey and Jamie McAllister for the clash with the Clarets.
Veteran centre-back Carey continues to struggle with a knee injury. The 34-year-old has not featured since the 5-0 defeat at Blackpool on October 1 and looks set to miss out again.
Full-back McAllister underwent surgery on an ankle injury picked up in the 1-1 draw at Doncaster on August 27 and has not turned out for City since, although he is closing in on a comeback.
New loan signing Stephen Pearson is in line for a debut after the midfielder completed his temporary move from Derby on Friday.
The Ashton Gate outfit are still chasing their first home win in all competitions this term but go into the game fresh off the back of a 2-1 victory at Barnsley last weekend and a goalless draw at West Ham on Tuesday.
Full-back Brian Easton remains an injury concern for Burnley's trip to Ashton Gate.
Easton was forced off during last weekend's derby win over Blackpool win a hip injury and sat out the midweek defeat to Leicester at Turf Moor.
If Easton misses out, Michael Duff could be included in the squad as defensive cover, despite missing two months with a knee injury and only returning to light training this week.
The Ashton Gate clash comes too soon for Martin Paterson who is approaching fitness after the recurrence of a thigh injury, and boss Eddie Howe is confident the forward can be brought up to speed during the international break.
"Pato is coming on really well," Howe told Burnley's official website. "I think a behind-closed-doors game to start with is the best way to go and then we'll see how it goes from there."
Goalkeeper Brian Jensen (groin) and striker Danny Ings (knee) remain sidelined.
