Sean Dyche confirms Chris Wood as a doubt ahead of Sheffield United clash

Burnley forward Chris Wood still continues to be a doubt ahead of the Clarets' match against Sheffield United on Saturday according to Lancanshire Live reports.

Wood was missing in action against Burnley's defeat to Chelsea after he sustained a hamstring injury.

Manager Sean Dyche has now confirmed that the New Zealand international is unlikely to feature against the Blades and they'd rather not take that risk with the first-choice striker.

Burnley also have injury doubts with Phil Bardsley as well as Danny Drinkwater and Johann Berg Gudmundsson who are still out of action.

"He’s making a good recovery but you always get those moments of decision, should we, shouldn’t we?

"The player’s included in that and we’ll talk to him over the next 24 hours about that.

"Bardo’s got a tight back. He obviously hasn’t been starting but he’s been in the squad. We’ll have to see how that settles down.

"Johann is making good progress but is still going to be weeks not days. He’s making good progress though. They are the main three at the moment."

Danny Drinkwater is believed to have fully recovered from his ankle injury but reports say that he will not be considered for matchday action until the next week or so.

Dyche said: "Drinky is getting fitter, his injury is just about right now.

"Now it’s going to be real fitness. He’s been joining in the training, adapting to that, he’ll probably need another week at least to join in regular training and the demands of that and then it’s games beyond that.

"He’s injury free at the current time and that gives him a more balanced situation to push on."
