Burnley boss Dyche: Barnes just like Leicester striker Vardy

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has likened Ashley Barnes to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

The pair will go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium on Saturday and Dyche says they are an example to any aspiring non-league player.

“They're both fine players in different ways," said the Burnley boss.

“Vardy for what he's done and continues to do. Barnesy is the same and they continually earn the right to push their careers. That's a brilliant thing for anyone to look at.

“Certainly if I were a non-league player, I'd be looking at them and thinking it can be done because those two are living proof."
