Burnley manager Sean Dyche is considering recalling Nick Pope to the first team ahead of fellow goalkeeper Tom Heaton, in what would be a second goalkeeping change of the season for the Clarets.
With Joe Hart taking the number one spot for much of the season, Heaton has since regained the role, earning a call-up to the England national side in the process - although he was at fault for two of the goals Burnley conceded in a recent loss to Liverpool.
Nonetheless, as reported by the Daily Mail, Dyche is still contemplating another change between the sticks after seeing his side lose their last four matches - conceding ten times in the process.
Their slide down the table has began to concern the 47-year-old, with Burnley hovering dangerously above the Premier League bottom three, two points above Cardiff in 18th, although the Welsh side have a game in hand on the Clarets.
Pope performed admirably for the Lancashire outfit last season, earning himself a spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad. However, he lost his place after sustaining a shoulder injury against Aberdeen back in July during a Europa League tie.

The 26-year-old subsequently recovered in December, but the arrival of former Manchester City goalkeeper Hart has seen Pope fall down the pecking order at Turf Moor - although it now appears Dyche looks set to reinstate the ex-York City 'keeper.
Despite barely featuring for Dyche's side this season, barring two FA Cup appearances, Arsenal are reportedly keen on snapping up the stopper for a meager £10m in the summer, with Gunners boss Unai Emery a fan of the England international.
