Clarets boss Sean Dyche will male a decision on the involvement of Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady ahead of tomorrow night’s friendlies at Macclesfield Town and Curzon Ashton.

Burnley will have two sides in action tomorrow, at National League Champions Macclesfield - managed by former Claret Mark Yates - and National League North Curzon Ashton (both kick-off 7-45 p.m.).

And Dyche will assess ahead of the games whether to field Gudmundsson - who returned to training this week after featuring for Iceland at their first World Cup - and Brady - who is stepping up his fitness after missing the second half of last season after knee surgery.

Nick Pope will not be available as he gets a break after being away at the World Cup with England, while striker Ashley Barnes (knee) and midfielder Steven Defour (calf) won’t feature.
