Coyle relishing selection headache

The Burnley manager has the prospect of welcoming back the likes of

striker Martin Paterson and forward Jay Rodriguez in the next week

while midfielder Chris McCann is expected to be sidelined until

January. The emptying of the treatment room will signal the first

time this season that the Clarets boss has a near full strength

squad to choose from. With Burnley currently 13th in the Premier

League, four points off the drop zone, Coyle will want to select

his strongest team for key games against those around them with a

trip to Wolves and a home clash with Bolton following the Gunners

match. “We have the quality and we have the players in one-on-one

situations who can light the place up,” he said. “I have asked them

to go and be positive and if they make mistakes they make them

trying to win games. “Come Monday I will have a few selection

headaches but that’s what I want because I have got the quality to

be able to make those decisions and we will address that for

Wednesday.”
