Caldwell closes on return

Published Add your comment

Burnley boss Owen Coyle is expecting Steven Caldwell to be back in training by the end of the week.

The Clarets skipper has missed the start to the season with a groin injury but Coyle is expecting his captain to be back in training ahead of Saturday's trip to Chelsea, even if playing a part at Stamford Bridge might be beyond him.

"Steven is responding better," said Coyle. "He is not quite ready to join us yet but I am hoping he joins in training at some point this week."

He added: "Steven has been outstanding for us and is a big part of what we are doing at this football club.

"He is a gem of a man and the sooner we get him back into the group the better."
