Barton could start Cup clash


Joey Barton could make his second debut for Burnley when they take on Sunderland in the third round of the FA Cup.

Barton has re-signed for his former club until the end of the season and should appear in a changed starting XI.

Tom Heaton should make way in goal for either Paul Robinson or Nick Pope, while loanees Patrick Bamford and John Flanagan have been made available by Chelsea and Liverpool and could make rare starts.
