Jensen was back with the first team on Saturday for the first time since he was injured at Peterborough in September. He was named on the bench ahead of Jon Stewart and tonight gets his first game since that groin injury.

Treacy is also in the line up. Things are clearly not as they should be as far as he's concerned and just yesterday manager Eddie Howe said of him: "Keith is fit. He has had to fight for his place and he has a lot to do. He may well now get an opportunity and it's up to him now to take it.

"It's a long season and we are going to need everyone to come in and play their part and this could be the opportunity he has been waiting for."

Zavon Hines is also named in the side as are Kevin Long, Joe McKee and Wes Fletcher who have all recently returned from loans whilst Dave Lynch, currently on loan at Stalybridge, is also able to play. Alex MacDonald, who came on at right back in the FA Cup tie at Norwich will play there from the start.

Burnley will also field two trialists. Marvin Johnson is with the club from Romulus. It is his second spell with the club whilst defender Matt Fry is a defender from West Ham.

Danny Ings, fit again, is named as a substitute and Burnley will line up: Brian Jensen, Alex MacDonald, Matt Fry, Kevin Long, Dave Lynch, Zavon Hines, Joe McKee, Dominic Knowles, Keith Treacy, Marvin Johnson, Wes Fletcher. Subs: Josh Cook, Alex Coleman, Steven Hewitt, Ross Wilson, Danny Ings.

The game is being played at Chorley and kicks off at 7:00 p.m. Admission is £4 adults, £2 concessions.
