Burnley winger Aaron Lennon is on course to return toPremier League football scene for the Crystal Palace game this weekend after recovering from the illness that forced him to miss the last Premier League clash at leaders Chelsea just before the just concluded international break.
Burnley have picked up four points from their last two games in the Premier League, while their opponents Palace have recorded a maximum of six points from two games to push into the top ten. The Clarets would be targeting only their second league win of the season at the expense of Palace.
The Clarets had Aaron Lennon as an unused substitute as they recorded their first Premier League win of this season with a 3-1 victory at home to newly promoted side Brentford at the end of last month. New Zealander Chris Woods started the floodgate of first half goals for Burnley as early as the fourth minute before two goals in four minutes clinched the points for the first time this season. Right-back Matt Lowton scored the second Burnley goal on 32 minutes before in-form Ivorian international Maxwel Cornet added a third goal four minutes later as the Clarets led 3-0 at the break. Iranian midfielder SamanGhaddos came off the bench to pull one back for the Bees on 79 minutes, but it proved to be mere consolation in the end.
Burnley then made it four points from two league games with the impressive 1-1 draw at the home of European champions and Premier League leaders Chelsea.
