Football - Ings getting better for Burnley

Danny Ings has returned to training but will undergo a late fitness test when Burnley meet Barnsley at Turf Moor.

The absence of the England Under-21 international, who has registered 15 goals in 21 Clarets games this term, was dearly felt in Tuesday night's goalless draw with Watford.

The striker's ankle problem will now be monitored to see if he can feature against the managerless Reds while Dean Marney will receive a similarly late assessment on his thigh strain.

Centre-back Michael Duff is back from suspension for the team who led the Sky Bet Championship until recently but winger Ross Wallace's knee problem will keep him out until the new year.
