Burnley boss Laws welcomes back Paterson, McCann

Burnley boss Brian Laws welcomes the return of Chris McCann and Martin Paterson following a four-month injury lay-off through serious knee injuries.

The pair featured in the FA Cup defeat to Reading.

Laws said: "Those two were major positives, they're good players and an integral part of a good team.

"We'd been organising ourselves in training and our back four had to change at the last moment with taking a hamstring injury at left back (to Stephen Jordan), and McCann had to drop in there," explained the former Sheffield Wednesday boss, who was also without Christian Kalvenes as his wife was due to give birth.

"McCann slotted in against one of their most potent players over the last few weeks and was excellent."
