Burnley’s Bardsley doubtful for Norwich FA Cup tie with back problem

Burnley will check on defender Phil Bardsley ahead of the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Norwich.

Bardsley missed the midweek Premier League win at Manchester United with a back problem and is rated as touch and go by Clarets boss Sean Dyche.

Winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson is another to be monitored following his recent hamstring injury, so might not be risked.

Defender Ben Gibson – linked with a move away – is also not ready to return after a groin problem, while striker Ashley Barnes continues to recover from hernia surgery.

Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell will sit out the trip to Turf Moor after picking up a hamstring problem during the defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday night.

Goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann is expected to shake off a knee injury to deputise for Tim Krul, who is set to be rested.

Midfielder Mario Vrancic (shin) could be involved again, but Kenny McLean (hip) and Ibrahim Amadou (knee) have joined Emi Buendia (thigh) in the treatment room.

Centre-back Ben Godfrey continues his three-game suspension, while defender Timm Klose (knee) is a long-term absentee.
