Burnley midfielder Brian Stock could be in line to make his first league start of the season when they host Brighton.
Stock, who joined the Clarets in the summer, scored the winning penalty against Plymouth in the League Cup on Tuesday in his first appearance for the club.
Manager Eddie Howe was encouraged to see the former Doncaster man come through the full 120 minutes unscathed and may hand him his league bow against the Seagulls.
Striker Martin Paterson has missed the last three games with a slight hamstring tear and remains doubtful.
Although the injury is not thought to be long-term, he will be assessed ahead of kick-off on Saturday with an outside chance of being named on the bench.
