Coyle hoping for fit international players

Burnley boss Owen Coyle hopes his international players return fit as they seek a first Premier League away point at Liverpool tomorrow.

Scotland pair Steven Fletcher and Graham Alexander, Northern Ireland striker Martin Paterson and Cameroon defender Andre Bikey were not due to resume training until today.

Steven Caldwell misses out again with groin trouble but defenders Richard Eckersley (suspension) and Michael Duff (ankle) are back in the squad and on-loan striker David Nugent – a former Liverpool youth academy player – is hoping to feature.

Provisional squad: Jensen; Mears, Eckersley, Duff, Carlisle, Bikey, Jordan, Alexander, Fletcher, Elliott, McCann, Blake, Paterson, Thompson, Guerrero, Eagles, Penny, Kalvanes, McDonald, Gudjonsson, Edgar, Rodriquez, Easton, Nugent.
