The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

BURN­LEY’S Ross Wal­lace is fi­nally in the clear fol­low­ing a lengthy in­jury lay-off – but the winger knows he faces a bat­tle on his hands to force his way back into the start­ing XI.

Wal­lace was named as an un­used sub­sti­tute in the Clarets’ thrilling 3-3 draw at Lof­tus Road last week­end af­ter knee surgery had kept him out for five months.

The likes of Michael Kightly and Scott Ar­field have stepped up in his ab­sence and though Wal­lace does not be­grudge the team’s suc­cess, he is itch­ing to start con­tribut­ing once again.

“The hard­est thing was watch­ing the team do­ing well, which was en­joy­able but for me per­son­ally I’d like to be out there play­ing,” he said.

“I’m ex­cited to get back, I want to get on the pitch with the boys be­cause they’re play­ing so well at the mo­ment.

“But Kights and Scott have done re­ally well and it’s up to them to keep play­ing well, they’ve got the shirts at the minute.”
