Burnley forward Jon Walters is set for more time in the treatment room as his recovery from a persistent knee problem takes longer than initially thought.
Sean Dyche revealed last month that the 34-year-old would "sidelined in the short term" due to an ongoing problem which required a visit to a specialist. Although the Clarets boss refused to give a timeline, it was expected that Walters would return in October, but it now looks like he will be another six weeks [at least]. After beating Wales to reach next month’s play off for the 2018 World Cup finals, news followed that Walters would not be available for the Republic of Ireland in November with some reports suggesting it could be after Christmas before he is ready for a return. Fortunately, summer signing Chris Wood has hit the ground running since his arrival [from Leeds United] with Burnley sitting in sixth place following an excellent start to their league campaign.
