Preview: Burnley vs. Watford

Sports Mole previews Tuesday night's Championship between two sides struggling for wins - Burnley and Watford.

Tuesday night at Turf Moor sees two out-of-form sides meet as Burnley host Watford in the Championship.

Burnley have gone four games without a win and relinquished top spot in the table by losing for the first time since August on Saturday at Huddersfield Town.

Manager Sean Dyche confirmed today that Danny Ings and Dean Marney are his main injury concerns ahead of tomorrow night's match.

Top scorer Ings, who hurt his ankle on Saturday, would be a big loss and possibly have his place taken by Junior Stanislas in the starting lineup, while Marney was missing at Huddersfield and replaced by David Edgar.

Michael Duff was sent off for two yellow cards at the John Smith's Stadium and will have to sit out Tuesday, with Kevin Long most likely to replace him in central defence.

Visitors Watford, meanwhile, are without a win in six and were humiliated by then-bottom Yeovil Town at home on Saturday.

There, Gianfranco Zola may wish to shake up his starting lineup and Marco Faraoni and Diego Fabbrini are the two players who seem most likely to push into the starting XI at the expense of Hector Bellerin and either Troy Deeney or Fernando Forestieri.

Both matches between these two finished level last season, with the most recent game at Vicarage Road ending in a memorable 3-3 draw.
