Chris Wood is in contention to start for Burnley against Leicester City on Wednesday after coming through his cameo appearance against Spurs without any problems.

The New Zealand international played the final 18 minutes of Sunday's 4-0 reverse to Tottenham and could come back into the starting XI against the Foxes.

Sean Dyche was careful not to rush the striker back from his hamstring issue but Wood could well come into the side on Wednesday night.

Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson remain sidelined while Robbie Brady and Erik Pieters, who were in contention to feature against Spurs, are also expected to remain absent.

Dale Stephens returned against Spurs and played the final 10 minutes and Dyche must weigh up whether to alter his XI to accommodate either of his fit-again pair.

"We're having to be careful with another three-game week," said Dyche.

"I'm not sure we'll have anyone else back in the next couple of days, we'll have to wait and see when I get more news from the physios."

On whether Wood is fit enough to start on Wednesday, the Clarets chief added: "We hope so, there is no reaction I don't think to today.

"We are having to make decisions for some of the players because we are looking at the game schedule and the days that they have missed through injury so that was a tougher decision.

"But we will get another couple of days training under his belt and hopefully he will be injury free and certainly available for selection."
