Burnley boss Dyche gives injury update on Wood

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has provided an injury update regarding Chris Wood for the weekend.

The Clarets boss claims that Wood is still a doubt for their next game, which is an away clash against Sheffield United.

The potential six-pointer is a key game for Burnley, but Wood will be absent unless he makes a very speedy recovery.

"Chris Wood's touch and go," said Dyche to reporters.

"He's making a good recovery but you always get those moments of decision, should we, shouldn't we?

"The player's included in that and we'll talk to him over the next 24 hours about that.

"Bardo's [Phil Bardsley] got a tight back. He obviously hasn't been starting but he's been in the squad. We'll have to see how that settles down.

"Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] is making good progress but is still going to be weeks not days. They are the main three at the moment."
