Fox doubtful for Hammers clash

Fox arrived at Turf Moor still nursing a groin strain that he

sustained at his previous club Celtic, but the defender trained

with his new team-mates this week and could feature against the

Hammers. Fellow new recruit Jack Cork will also be hoping to make

his first appearance for the Clarets after joining on loan from

Chelsea. David Nugent is available again after missing the 2-1

defeat against Chelsea while negotiations were being finalised

about extending his loan deal from Portsmouth. Kevin McDonald and

Christian Kalvenes should be fit despite coming off with knocks

during the Chelsea match, while Chris McCann is back in training

after his knee injury and Stephen Jordan is also pushing to be in

contention having spent a fortnight out with a hamstring strain.

Steven Caldwell (groin) and Graham Alexander (calf) are still

sidelined. Burnley (from): Jensen, Weaver, Carlisle, Cort, Bikey,

Jordan, Mears, Edgar, Eagles, Elliott, McDonald, Fletcher, Duff,

Blake, Thompson, Penny, Guerrero, Gudjonsson, Kalvenes, Eckersley,

McCann, Nugent, Nimani, Paterson, Fox, Cork.
