Ben Mee and Jack Cork to miss the rest of the season?
Burnley manager Sean Dyche says Mee and Cork are likely to miss the rest of the season through injury.
Burnley’s captain Mee suffered a thigh strain in their last match against Sheffield United on Sunday 5th July. While Cork sustained an ankle problem at Crystal Palace that is likely to require a minor surgical procedure.
The double setback is proving demanding for Sean Dyche, admitting he is having to struggle through the remainder of the season while nursing injuries. It seems unlikely that both Mee and Cork are going to make the games with such a short period for the games now. Although, Dyche is “not envisaging that the injuries will roll into next season, they will be fit and well”.
Dyche has also insisted that they will not feel sorry for themselves and believes that it could have come at a worse time during the season:
“It is one of them unfortunate things, lets face it, it could have come at a time when we weren’t in the shape we are in … These injuries and different challenges have come at a time when we have got good points on the table so there is a balance to the situation. 46 points at this stage is no mean feat for clubs like ourselves”.
