Burnley have revealed goalkeeper Brian Jensen sustained an ankle ligament injury during the home defeat by Wigan on Saturday.

The damage was described on Monday by the club as only "slight" and the 34-year-old may have a chance of recovering to play against Hull at the weekend.

Jensen fell awkwardly in his penalty area to allow Hugo Rodallega to put Wigan 1-0 in front at Turf Moor, and had to be substituted.

The Dane's left ankle has been assessed and scans have shown the nature of the injury, for which Jensen will receive treatment this week.
