Sean Dyche, manager of Burnley, gives his team instructions during the Premier League match between Southampton and Burnley.

We keep getting people fit, then we get injuries, but we were hoping to have everybody fit," said Dyche.

"Phil Bardsley, unfortunately, had a family bereavement, Barnesy's making progress and getting fitter, Robbie Brady got injured on international duty, Longy pulled his calf, so all of a sudden you're men down.

"Then Erik Pieters goes off so you're left scratching your head again. We're hoping they're not too serious and we can get some of them back fit, but Robbie's going to be longer I think and we'll wait on news of Erik."
