Squad news for Turf Moor trip

There's good news and bad news for Ian Holloway who named his squad for Saturday's trip to Turf Moor on Thursday afternoon.

Former Clarets midfielder Richard Chaplow, who has missed the last three games with a calf injury, is fit to travel, but Danny Shittu is ruled out with a sore groin.

Striker Jermaine Easter has recovered from a bang on the foot he suffered while netting twice for the Under 21s at Ipswich on Tuesday. He will be fighting for a striking berth with Steve Morison, DJ Campbell, Simeon Jackson and Scott McDonald, who is restored to the squad after a two match absence.

Ed Upson, signed from Yeovil on deadline day, is, like Jackson, included for the first time since his arrival. Young keeper Denzel Gerrar (19) looks set to be on the bench in the continued absence of David Forde (thigh), with fellow Academy product Jack Powell also included in the 20.

Club captain Paul Robinson, who has yet to feature under Ian Holloway, could be in line for a recall at centre back in place of Shittu and Shane Lowry (suspension), although Shaun Williams is an option in that position too.
