BURNLEY have been dealt a blow prior to Saturday’s visit of Sunderland after striker Danny Ings was ruled out for four weeks.

Ings suffered a hamstring strain in last weekend’s stalemate at Crystal Palace and limped off just before the interval.

Initial scans have indicated that the England Under-21 frontman, who netted 26 goals for Burnley last season, will miss the three Premier League encounters before the international break.

Former Bolton striker Marvin Sordell is likely to take Ings’ place against Sunderland, with the Clarets searching for their first goal since the opening weekend of the campaign.
