Burnley boss Sean Dyche has backed his side to cope with the void left by Sam Vokes's injury.

The 20-goal striker has had his season curtailed early after he suffered anterior cruciate damage, but the Clarets boss believes that his team can deal with the player's absence.

Dyche told the club's official website: "Sam has had a great season and I am sure you will join us all in supporting him during his recovery.

"As ever, our team mentality remains focused and this represents another opportunity for someone to come and make a continued contribution in the closing weeks of the season."

Dyche's side are currently second in the Championship.
