BURNLEY’S injury crisis is on the verge of easing, with captain and goalkeeper Tom Heaton playing his first game in over five months in a behind closed doors meeting with Blackpool, striker Chris Wood coming through 70 minutes and midfielder Dean Marney completing 90 minutes.
|The centre-half's a big boy and has gone down a bit easy,
said Hughes. He hasn't tripped him or thrown him.
We went into the game wanting to win - we wanted back-to-back results,
Hughes said to BBC Sport. It wasn't to be, we got into a winning position and maybe didn't have the nous to make sure we kept the margin at 2-0.
There's a little bit of a concern with Shane and Charlie leading into the game,
I enjoyed the game. We were up against a quality team,
Hughes said. They are a high pressing team and that will help us, because we will face teams like that in the Premier League .
