Howe excited by potential

Published Add your comment

Burnley boss Eddie Howe is excited by the potential of his forward line after finally having a fully fit strikeforce at his disposal.

Martin Paterson returns after three months on the sidelines with a thigh injury, while Danny Ings is back in action after tearing knee cartilage.

The teenager was struck down in only his second training session for the Clarets after a summer move from Burnley, but is raring to go under his former manager.

And, with Jay Rodriguez and Charlie Austin also available, Howe knows he has the makings of a particularly potent goalscoring department.

"With Pato and Danny Ings we've got four really talented strikers there," said Howe. "I think they could all play with each other, no matter who you pick.

"Charlie (Austin) and Jay Rodriguez are proving a good partnership but I think all of them can play with each other, so it really excites me if we get those two back together, who knows what we're capable of.


"Charlie will probably play on the shoulder and be in the box all the time and Jay Rod will probably be the one that drops that little bit deeper and influences play.

"It's great to have that option."

Burnley are four games unbeaten after a poor start to the campaign, and currently sit in 14th place in the Npower Championship.
