While Burnley will again be without Robbie Brady and Kevin Long, Dyche has no further injury worries as the Clarets look to rubber-stamp a sixth-successive season in the Premier League.

Top scorer Chris Wood and midfielder Dale Stephens have both had knocks over the week, but both will be available to face the Cottagers.

Dyche said: "We'll still be missing Robbie and Kevin Long.

"Dale Stephens is carrying a bit of a knock, that might have to be dealt with over time, but he was okay to train today.

"So so far, so good.

"Woody had a bit of a dead leg, he was labouring a little bit in the last game, but he's come through that fine.

"Popey is looking strong as well, so we're hopeful for those two.

"Barnesy is looking stronger and sharper, and fitter in training - we believe in the intensity the lads put into training, and he and we have used that to get him at least up to a level where he can certainly be part of the squad."
