Team News: Joey Barton makes full debut for Burnley away at Rotherham United

Joey Barton is handed his full debut for Burnley in tonight's Championship clash against Rotherham United.

Joey Barton has been handed his full debut for Burnley in tonight's Championship clash against Rotherham United at New York Stadium.

The former Newcastle United midfielder, who joined the Clarets on a free transfer in the summer after being released by Queens Park Rangers, made his first appearance off the bench in last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Reading.

In the middle of the park Barton will join David Jones and Scott Arfield, who will make his 100th appearance in all competitions for the club, while goalkeeper Tom Heaton will also reach the same feat when he walks out onto the pitch this evening.

Alongside Sam Vokes in attack, Andre Gray has replaced Rouwen Hennings, who is not in the matchday squad at all this evening.

All eyes will be on Rotherham interim boss Eric Black, who is in temporary charge after Steve Evans left the club earlier this week.

There are no places in the squad for Lee Frecklington and Paul Green as they are both struggling with calf and Achilles problems respectively.

Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe returned to parent club Norwich City this week following a month-long stay, which means that Grant Ward has been given a chance to impress on home soil.

Rotherham United: Camp; Buxton, Collins, Rawson, Mattock; G Ward, Smallwood, Andreu, Newell; Clarke-Harris, Derbyshire
Subs: Collin, Broadfoot, Maguire, Maguire, D Ward, Ledesma, White, Richardson

Burnley: Heaton; Darikwa, Duff, Keane, Mee; Boyd, Jones, Barton, Arfield; Vokes, Gray
Subs: Gilks, Ward, Ulvestad, Taylor, Lowton, Long, Kightly
