Sam Vokes: Injury not as bad as feared

The striker sustained the problem in a friendly against Stoke on Tuesday, leaving the Britannia Stadium on crutches.

Despite the Wales international not requiring an X-ray, the bruising to the bone makes him a doubt for Tuesday's visit of Middlesbrough.

"He has got a sore foot but it's nothing too drastic," Clarets manager Sean Dyche confirmed on the club's official website.

"It was studs across the foot but we are hoping that settles down quickly.

"It is sore but we can only be hopeful that he is available for Tuesday."

Meanwhile, Ben Mee is close to a return to full training after a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines since December.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
