Alexander edging closer to Burnley return

Burnley veteran Graham Alexander is on the comeback trail.

The 38-year-old, the oldest outfield player in the top flight, has been missing since suffering a calf injury during the defeat at Bolton last month.

"Grezza will be on the training pitch this week," Clarets boss Brian Laws told the Lancashire Telegraph. "He has been progressing well and we are really pleased with that.

"It is now a matter of him stepping up his work and seeing how it goes for him. He doesn't have many injuries so it is hard to judge but he is ready to step up."
