Burnley v Fulham - Squad News

last updated Monday 19th February 2001, 11:21 PM
Fulham forward Barry Hayles is trying to persuade manager Jean Tigana to end his injury woe and hand him a place in the Cottagers squad.

The striker has overcome his ankle trouble - but Danish ace Peter Moller was handed the attacking berth in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Player-coach John Collins finally overcame his hamstring strain to return to the first-team against David Platt's men, and he is keen to figure against the Clarets.

Luis Boa Morte shrugged off rumours linking him to a move to Benfica to put in an impressive performance at the weekend - and he is likely to start again.
Burnley manager Stan Ternent is expected to hand a Clarets debut to loan signing Gareth Taylor while Fulham's Barry Hayles is pressing for inclusion in the Cottagers' squad.

Manchester City marksman Taylor has agreed to join Burnley for a month after finding himself out of City boss Joe Royle's Premiership plans.

Ternent should welcome back Kevin Ball for the visit of the midfielder's former club after he recovered from a bout of flu.

Ian Moore has been employed as a lone striker in recent weeks but with Taylor's arrival the Clarets can be expected to revert to two forward players.

Ternent's men have picked up a paltry four points out of a possible 30 but missed a string of good chances in the 1-0 defeat by Grimsby at the weekend.

Lee Briscoe has yet to recover from his hamstring problem and is again likely to miss out.
