VOKES OP BLOW TO CLARETS

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE: -

DAVID EDGAR hopes Sam Vokes’ in­jury woes are the last hur­dle Burn­ley face in their race for the Pre­mier League.

The Welsh striker has notched 20 goals this sea­son but went un­der the knife af­ter suf­fer­ing a rup­tured cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in his left knee – rul­ing him out of the run-in.

“He didn’t want it to end like this, but he’ll come back stronger,” said Edgar.

“It’s been a bit­ter-sweet sea­son now, but he’s got a good head on his shoul­ders and he’ll be okay.

“Touch wood, we’ve been lucky with in­juries for most of the sea­son so hope­fully noth­ing else sneaks up on us.”
