Coyle relishing selection headache

BY foxsports • December 14, 2009

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."
