Burnley manager Sean Dyche is expected to make changes for the Premier League side’s trip to local rivals Accrington Stanley in the EFL Cup second round.

Striker Ashley Barnes is out with a hamstring injury, but on-loan full-back Jon Flanagan is available after being unable to face parent club Liverpool.

Accrington’s Chris Eagles is battling to be fit to face his former club.

But midfielder Scott Brown and striker Terry Gornell will definitely miss Wednesday’s tie through injury.

Burnley have won one and lost one of their opening two Premier League matches, while east Lancashire neighbours Accrington have taken four points from their four League Two matches.
