Heaton set to come back in for Clarets

Tom Heaton is expected to return to the Burnley team as they go in search of a third successive Premier League win against second-bottom Fulham.

The goalkeeper played in the last two Premier League games, with Joe Hart on the bench.

Boss Sean Dyche has said Nick Pope, who made his comeback from a dislocated shoulder in last weekend’s FA Cup win over Barnsley, will be “given the time to be as right as you can possibly be”.

Dyche, who made eight changes for the tie, has also said there is “a strong chance” at least one of Phil Bardsley and Matt Lowton (knocks) will be fit.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (thigh) is a doubt, and Aaron Lennon (knee) and Robbie Brady (suspension) remain unavailable.

Fulham defender Alfie Mawson will miss out on the trip to Turf Moor with a knee injury.

The Cottagers are still assessing the extent of the problem for the former Swansea man, with no prognosis yet on a recovery timescale.

Boss Claudio Ranieri will revert to his first-choice starting XI after last weekend’s surprise 2-1 home FA Cup loss to League Two Oldham.
