Tom Heaton has played 90 minutes twice over the international break for Burnley in the Professional Development League, as the club captain feels ready to join the first team.
Along with two full shifts in the PDL, most recently in a win over Queens Park Rangers, Heaton has also played two additional games behind-closed-doors. One gets the feeling that under different circumstances, Heaton would be in contention to start this weekend. But, the development and success of Nick Pope has allowed Sean Dyche to be more cautious with Heaton. In the big picture, it is a good problem for Burnley, as they should be able to sell one of their keepers this summer for a nice fee. For fantasy purposes in the meantime though, there is too much uncertainty to rely on either keeper, particularly in the FPL format. Tough break, as Burnley are the only club to have a double gameweek in Week 34 and fixture the following week. Those wanting a Claret for clean sheet potential need to limit themselves to an option among defenders. Mar 30 - 4:14 AM
