Vokes’ groin injury not serious – Dyche

9 Apr

Sam Vokes in action against Leeds

Sam Vokes joined Burnley from Wolves for an undisclosed fee in July 2012.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has eased Welsh fears over the injury suffered by Clarets striker Sam Vokes in their 1-0 win over Leeds United.

The 26-year-old will almost certainly be in manager Chris Coleman’s Wales squad for the Euro 2016 finals in June.

Vokes, who has scored 14 goals for the Championship leaders, was replaced by Ashley Barnes late on.

Dyche, however, reassured Burnley and Wales fans that Vokes’ groin injury “doesn’t look too serious.”

Vokes was named the Championship’s player of the month for March after scoring four goals.

He missed nine months after rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament in March 2014 but has been in good form since, featuring in Wales’ recent friendlies against Northern Ireland and Ukraine.
