Plans are being made to hold a fifth minute applause for Clarke Carlisle during Burnley’s Boxing Day clash with Liverpool.

The former Clarets number five is currently in Leeds General Infirmary after being struck by a lorry on the A64 early Monday morning.

Supporter Lee Dane said he emailed Burnley Football Club asking if they would be open to the idea of the minute’s applause.

“I had a very positive response on one of the fan pages regarding this, so I emailed the club about this idea and they have emailed me back saying they would fully co-operate and display a picture of Clarke during the applause.”
