Burnley v Barnet preview

Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be without new recruit Danny Ings for the game against Barnet.
The 19-year-old striker looks set to be sidelined until the new year after suffering a knee injury in training last Thursday.
Ings, who only arrived at Turf Moor last Monday on a four-year deal from Bournemouth, requires a cartilage operation and joins fellow frontman Martin Paterson on the sidelines.
Paterson remains out of action with a troublesome thigh injury and midfielder Marvin Bartley misses out as he serves the second game of a three-match ban.
In-form striker Charlie Austin scored his third goal of the season in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Cardiff and is expected to be available despite picking up a knock against the Bluebirds.
Steve Kabba is in line to make a welcome return to the Barnet squad for the match.
The striker has been sidelined since the end of last season with a knee injury which required surgery.
But Kabba has been back in training for a couple of weeks and manager Lawrie Sanchez earmarked the trip to Turf Moor, where he will be able to name seven substitutes, for his return.
Sanchez has no new injury concerns and could stick with the same starting line-up which drew 2-2 at Rotherham on Saturday.
Defenders Daniel Leach and Darren Dennehy are still in the treatment room recovering from the long-term foot injuries they suffered last season.
