Burnley v Brentford preview

Sean Dyche will select from a similar squad against the Bees.
Ex-Aston Villa full-back Matt Lowton (shin) returned to full training on Thursday but Saturday’s fixture is likely to come too soon for him to make his competitive debut.
Midfielder Fredrik Ulvestad (ankle) is further away still while long-term injury absentees Kevin Long and Dean Marney (both knee) have done some light work with the development squad.
The Clarets are also without Ashley Barnes (knee), Jason Gilchrist (ankle) and Daniel Lafferty (collarbone).
Bees defender James Tarkowski could play in a protective mask after breaking his nose against Bristol City last weekend.
But Spanish midfielder Jota this week underwent ankle surgery which will keep him out for around three months.
Full-back Nico Yanneris has yet to shake off a dead leg and midfielder Marcos Tebar remains sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Josh McEachran (foot) will be out until November while Andreas Bjelland and Scott Hogan (both knee) are long-term absentees.
