Sean Dyche: 'Danny Ings could be back next week'

Sean Dyche says that Burnley hitman Danny Ings could be back in time to face Leicester City next weekend following a hamstring injury.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has revealed that striker Danny Ings is progressing well in his return to fitness and could face Leicester City next week.

The 22-year-old strained his hamstring in the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace a fortnight ago, ruling him out of last week's stalemate with Sunderland as well as Sunday's visit to West Bromwich Albion.

"Danny is making good progress and that's just a time issue, rather than the injury," he told reporters.

"If he is really super fit and training actively, he comes back into the thoughts for selection, but at the moment he's not there yet.

"However, he's on the grass and making good strides forward, so that will be a judgement call next week."

Ings hit 21 Championship goals for the Clarets last term but is yet to open his account in the Premier League this season.
