Vital Burnley editor 'Turfmanphil` joins us today to help preview Saturday`s clash up at Burnley. Make sure to check the Burnley site to see how I answered Phil`s questions!

Hopes, fears & expectations for the season?


Fears - Another season of mid-table mediocrity and the loss of Charlie Austin in the Jan window!

Hopes & Expectations: Top 10 finish if not Play-Offs.

Disappointed to see Eddie Howe go?
Not in the end, we all wanted him to succeed after Laws but I think we gradually began to realise he was out of his depth at this level.

Has Sean Dyche been a popular appointment and how has he done?

After Clarets fans got used to no high profile appointment (Holloway/McCarthy), Sean Dyche has been received well. Good start and defence playing a lot,lot better! Only one win in six though now but quite a few draws.

Who will be the key man on Saturday?

We always have to say Charlie Austin these days!

One Claret you'd drive to his next club & why?

Nobody of that ilk at the moment! All the duffers already gone!

One Hornet you'd snare & why?

Troy Deeney looks a useful striker although not sure we need one at the moment! Might if Austin goes!

Any injury/suspension worries?


Left back, Ben Mee out for a few weeks with injury. Chris McCann and Michael Duff one-match suspension (fifth yellows).

Expect Lafferty, Edgar and Bartley will stand in for them.

Cheers Phil!
