Burnley wait on Ings ahead of Leeds visit

This Is Lancashire: Burnley wait on Ings Burnley wait on Ings

BURNLEY will monitor Danny Ings ahead of Saturday's visit of Leeds United, after the top scorer limped out of last night's 3-3 draw with Birmingham City.

The 21-year-old did not take part in this afternoon's training session as a result of an ankle knock sustained in the second half at St Andrew's.

He will undergo further assessment tomorrow before manager Sean Dyche picks his starting XI for the Turf Moor clash, but it is not thought to be a "sinister" injury.

"Anything done will be precautionary because the medical team deem it appropriate," said Dyche.

"We'll be getting it checked out more thoroughly. We don't think at this stage it's anything too sinister but we will get it checked out, as we would with any other player. It's care and attention to detail."

Bruised ankle apparently according to my 'sources'.

Will more than likely be on the bench minimum against Dirty Leeds on Saturday.

No need to risk him, 1 game missed and then 10 played would do great for me.

Quite right McClaret. We've got more than enough fire power to trouble dirty Leeds who can't stop conceding goals at the minute.
