Burnley host West Ham United on Sunday in the Premier League seeking a win that could take them out of the bottom three.
The Clarets are set to be without Maxwel Cornet and Ben Mee through injury as they aim to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Newcastle United last weekend.
But Sean Dyche’s side face a tough test against the Hammers, who beat Chelsea last time out and sit in the top four.

Pundits Michael Owen and Mark Lawrenson feel Burnley are not far away from turning a corner as they gave their score verdicts.
Owen, in his Bet Victor column, said: “Burnley didn’t play badly in the defeat to Newcastle last week, but they didn’t create enough. That’s something that will need to get addressed, fast.
“What a win that was for the Hammers last week. They had gone a few games without a win, so to respond with the win against Chelsea was superb. Was Masuaku’s goal a shot or a cross? I’m sure David Moyes won’t care one bit!
“I fancy West Ham to build on that win with another win here. 1-2.”
Lawrenson, in his BBC Sport column, said: “Well, West Ham just keep on going. They have now beaten Chelsea and Liverpool, and given Manchester City a proper test – they are not fourth by beating the lower sides, they are beating the teams above them as well.
“The thing about the Hammers is that they believe in themselves now, and the way they play absolutely suits them. They have got some really strong players in key positions and they work extremely hard.
“David Moyes has got them playing and they have become a team who are really difficult to play against, because they have got a bit of everything – physicality plus flair and ability.
“Their biggest problem right now, especially coming into such a busy period, is running out of steam. They are already short of numbers defensively now Kurt Zouma and Ben Johnson have joined Angelo Ogbonna on the treatment table.
“If there are any tired limbs out there in the West Ham team, it might catch up with them at Turf Moor. Burnley have only won once this season, which is why they are in the relegation zone, but they are usually hard to beat. 1-1.”
