Burnley v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Preview

Burnley’s clash with Wolves may come too soon for Dale Stephens

Dale Stephens is closing in on a return for Burnley but Monday’s clash with Wolves may come too soon for the midfielder.

A hamstring injury has restricted his involvement since a September switch from Brighton and yet he could have a part to play over the festive period, which is also the case for defender Phil Bardsley (rib), who was back on the bench at Aston Villa on Thursday.

Sean Dyche remains without Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) and Jack Cork (ankle), but the duo are edging closer to being back in contention again.

Wolves could be without Leander Dendoncker and Willy Boly.

Both players picked up injuries during the victory over Chelsea in midweek and, although boss Nuno Espirito Santo was cagey regarding their fitness on Friday, he said Tuesday’s match had left him with some problems.

Joao Moutinho is available again following suspension but Raul Jimenez (fractured skull) and Jonny (knee) remain sidelined.

Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Peacock-Farrell, Bardsley, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Long, Dunne, Brownhill, McNeil, Brady, Westwood, Benson, Wood, Barnes, Rodriguez, Vydra.

Wolves provisional squad: Patricio, Ruddy, Kilman, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Dendoncker, Buur, Hoever, Marcal, Moutinho, Semedo, Ait-Nouri, Otasowie, Vitinha, Neves, Traore, Neto, Podence, Silva.

    Ashley Barnes ends goal drought as Burnley secure win over Wolves

    Barnes had gone 17 games without a goal before scoring in the first half at Turf Moor.

    Ashley Barnes's first goal in more than a year set Burnley on their way to a 2-1 win over Wolves as their resurgence continued. Barnes ended a 17-game run without a goal when he headed home midway through the first half, while a thumping effort from Chris Wood early in the second made it the first time Burnley had scored more than once in a home game since February. They could have had more on an encouraging night, spoiled only by Fabio Silva's late penalty for Wolves, as Burnley made it eight points from their last four games to put a slow start to the season behind them. Barnes was the only change to the side which drew with Aston Villa on Thursday, replacing Jay Rodriguez, desperate to end a drought which had come either side of a lengthy spell out last term with a hernia problem.

    Nuno had kept Silva on the bench, instead playing a wildcard in the form of the 19-year-old Owen Otasowie, who made his full debut after appearing as a substitute in the win over Chelsea last week.

    Listed as a midfielder, he took up a central role in a front three, with his physical presence certainly a disrupting force if not always an effective one.

    Having gone in trailing, a response would have been expected from Nuno's men after the break but they were on the back-foot almost immediately.

    Josh Brownhill capitalised on a slip from Neves to bend a shot on to the crossbar before Wood doubled Burnley's lead in the 51st minute after the visitors failed to deal with Ashley Westwood's free-kick.

    Ben Mee headed the ball back into the box where it struck Rayan Ait-Nouri before sitting up for Wood to blast into the roof of the net from point-blank range.

    Chances kept coming, the best of them when Westwood's pass over the top freed Wood, but Patricio was quickly out to smother the shot. With Silva and Traore replacing Otasowie and Ait-Nouri, Wolves's changes had an impact as they turned up the intensity late on, with Neves's volley from the edge of the area forcing a smart save from Pope before Daniel Podence's close-range shot was deflected wide.

    Their late lifeline came when Silva wriggled away from James Tarkowski and then tumbled over a challenge from Josh Benson - just on as a substitute and guilty of conceding a penalty before touching the ball.

    Silva hit the spot-kick low and hard to the left to beat Pope - denying Burnley a third straight clean sheet - but Saiss missed with a late chance from a tight angle and Wolves left empty-handed.
