However there's good news of Bes Berisha. He had to go to his homeland to make the visa application will hopefully join up with the squad in time for tomorrow's game and could feature for the first time for the Clarets since last year's pre-season trip to Austria.
The Clarets also have a trialist currently training with the squad, a young American, but manager Owen Coyle doesn't want to divulge his name. "He will be spending a few days training with us and he has acquitted himself well," the manager said.
"I don't want to be mentioning names because whenever they leak out it only alerts other teams, but he is a very gifted footballer and we will see what the next few days bring."
