IP­SWICH boss Paul Jewell pri­vately ad­mits the club can’t af ford to hand Ja­son Scot­land many mor e starts.

Scot­land is two games away from ac­ti­vat­ing a clause in his con­tract which guar­an­tees a one-year ex­ten­sion on the same wages.

But Jewell fears the club will be un­able to stump up the cash for the T rinidad and T obago hit­man next term.

He r efuses to ad­mit in public the rea­son for Scot­land’s lack of game time, but with the T rac­tor Boys safe he is un­will­ing to risk putting the club’s fi­nances in dan­ger.

Burn­ley as­sis­tant boss Ja­son Tin­dall hopes the re­turn of Jay Ro­driguez puts an end to their dis­mal run of six games with­out a win.

Ro­driguez missed Sun­day’s bor e draw against Cardiff and Tin­dall said: “It’s not only 20 goals for our team, but a fan­tas­tic player, one of the best in the Cham­pi­onship.

“You are go­ing to miss a player of Jay’s qual­ity.”
