Burnley striker, Andre Gray, could be fit for Saturday when his side host Steve Clarke’s Reading, according to manager, Sean Dyche.
Dyche’s summer acquisition from Brentford limped off during Burnley’s 0-0 draw with Derby County at the iPro Stadium on Monday, with a hamstring injury.
Speaking of Gray’s potential involvement on Saturday, Dyche told the Lancashire Telegraph: “We’ll see. He’s touch and go. It’s just whether we decide if he’s ready for Saturday or not.”
Gray made a flying start to his Burnley career, scoring on his home debut in the Clarets’ 3-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month.
The full extent of Gray’s injury is yet to be confirmed, but Dyche is hopeful, saying: “The impression was, anecdotally from the player himself, and the medical staff, was that if it does keep him out, it isn’t anything major.”
Burnley are currently third in the Sky Bet Championship, having won their four previous games to Monday’s draw with Derby.
Saturday’s game should prove to be a hugely entertaining affair as sixth placed Reading look to end the Clarets’ five game unbeaten run, and cement their place in the play-offs.
