Burnley fighting fit after sickness

Burnley have overcome the sickness bug that swept through their camp last weekend.

Manager Brian Laws saw half a dozen players affected by illness in the run-up to the 1-1 draw at QPR.

Jack Cork and Andre Bikey were only fit enough to be named as subs, while Wade Elliott and Danny Fox battled through on the pitch.

'The good thing is that is hasn't affected us any more. In fact what we should have is a clean bill of health,' confirmed Laws.

'Martin Paterson missed the first two days of training this week but hopefully towards the latter stages of the week he will recover enough to be available for the weekend.'

Laws' problem this weekend is who to leave out.

'It's tough to call because I will be leaving out good players, no question about it, and probably what epitomises the whole situation is the two goalkeepers,' he said.
