Key Clarets pair Ashley Westwood and Matej Vydra both missed Wednesday night's Carabao Cup clash at Newcastle United having also been absent for Saturday's 2-0 league defeat at Liverpool.

Vydra has been experiencing a tight groin whilst Westwood has had a toe problem but Dyche is hopeful that both will be fit to face Leeds in Sunday's 2pm kick-off.

"We think we have better news with Westy and Vyds," said Dyche at Friday's pre-match press conference, as quoted by LancsLive.
