Burnley: Scott Twine suffers injury setback

Burnley: Scott Twine suffers injury setback -Burnley News

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has confirmed that forward Scott Twine has suffered an injury setback.

The Lowdown: Twine’s injury issues

Twine, who arrived at Turf Moor in the summer from MK Dons, has only made one appearance for the Clarets. That came in the opening weekend win over Huddersfield, with the 23-year-old missing the next 10 games in all competitions.

He returned to training this week with the hope of featuring in Saturday’s win over Bristol City, but as we know, he wasn’t in the squad.

The Latest: Kompany’s comments

Speaking after the 2-1 win over the Robins, as relayed by Lancs Live, Kompany admitted that Twine has suffered an “unfortunate” setback.

The manager added that he will ‘stop putting a date on’ a return for the attacking midfielder, but is hopeful it could be sooner rather than later.

Will Burnley go straight back up?

Yes, 100%

The Verdict: Not ideal

Labelled a “terrific character” by his former MK Dons boss Liam Manning, Twine was one of five Burnley players who missed Saturday’s win through injury, so the news of a setback isn’t ideal.

The attacking midfielder enjoyed a remarkable season last year in League One, contributing to 33 goals in 46 games. He looks set to be an important player for Kompany, so the Burnley boss and the player himself could really do with a break when it comes to injuries.

The Clarets have been coping well without their summer signing, though, so hopefully Twine can strengthen Kompany’s attacking options even further relatively soon.
