Burnley have no fresh injury or suspension concerns as they try to make it 20 games unbeaten at home in the league against Nottingham Forest.

The Clarets have named an unchanged starting XI in five successive matches, during which time they have won twice and drawn three times.

Winger Keith Treacy came off the bench to salvage a point at Bournemouth last weekend and will hope that notable act will be enough to persuade boss Sean Dyche he is worthy of a spot in the line-up.

Dyche would have a full-strength squad were it not for midfielder Brian Stock's minor back complaint.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest's injury problems show little sign of easing ahead of the trip to Turf Moor to face fellow promotion hopefuls Burnley.

Despite missing eight players against Leicester on Wednesday night Forest managed a 2-2 home draw against the Championship leaders to extend their unbeaten run to 14 league matches.

Only full-back Eric Lichaj (hernia) has a chance of returning to the squad against the second-placed Clarets.

David Vaughan, Chris Cohen, Dexter Blackstock (all knee), Kelvin Wilson , Henri Lansbury (both back), Jack Hobbs (ankle) and Guy Moussi (calf) will remain on the sidelines.
