The Clarets are already being stretched to the limits in terms of numbers as Dyche's threadbare squad was further depleted in games against Sheffield United and the Foxes.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson was stretchered off in the Carabao Cup tie at home to the Blades midweek, Robbie Brady sustained an injury to his ribs on Sunday evening while defender James Tarkowski was sidelined for both fixtures with a toe injury.

The Clarets have also been without captain Ben Mee, midfielder Jack Cork and striker Ashley Barnes so far this season.

However, despite their struggles, the club have only added goalkeeper Will Norris to the senior pack and time is now running out.

With the October 5th deadline looming, fans took to social media to vent their frustration at the club's lack of business during the window.

That was the general concensus across the social media platforms, particularly on Twitter.

@John_Berry95: Painful. This team is doing everything they can. Players getting injured yet will we see movement in the window? I highly doubt it. Think there is a very real possibility we’ll see Dyche go before this season is out. Don’t know what more he has to do if you refuse to back him.

@mattstubbs17: Up to the board now. We've got the manager and players who, despite their limitations, continuously give everything they have. They need help in the next 2 weeks. If they don't get it, there's only 1 way this season is going, and it won't be on the players, it won't be on SD either.

@AlfieWhalley: Players did their best. Brilliant from Dunne, especially coming from u23s straight to playing Leicester away for his first Premier League game.

@JoshWildman3: Players were fantastic today and gave everything. Back Dyche.

@Hogwasher1981: No shame in how the lads played tonight but we are down to our bare bones on the first league game of the season - not good enough. #BackDyche

@IanChase67: Sign some players and act like a Premier League club!!

@franconuteo: Dyche and the lads do all they can, help them with some signings. Squad is extremely short.

@stevejblackburn: Lots of positives today given all the injuries. We just need a few more players. Sign some players and act like a Premier League club!!
