Alexander set for Burnley return

Burnley veteran Graham Alexander is set to return to full training after being sidelined with a calf injury.

The 38-year old has been out of action for just under a month but Clarets boss Brian Laws is happy to welcome him back and expects him to be back in the first team very soon.

"Graham will be on the training pitch this week," 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."
