Taylor to miss reunion

Filed: Thursday, 16th October 2014

Matt Taylor will not feature against West Ham for Burnley on Saturday after it was confirmed the veteran midfielder requires surgery on a troublesome Achilles.

Oxford-born Taylor, who left the Hammers at the end of last season on a free transfer joined the newly-promoted Clarets at the beginning of July.

However he made just four appearances for his latest club before complaining of a mystery ankle injury, which will require medical attention; Burnley confirmed today he will be "out for the foreseeable future".

However there is better news for Sean Dyche and his team as they prepare to host West Ham at Turf Moor tomorrow afternoon with last season's leading goalscorer Danny Ings and David Jones both deemed fit to play this weekend.

Meanwhile the trio of Kieran Trippier, Michael Keane and the on-loan-from-Chelsea Nathaniel Chalobah all face late fitness tests, whilst Dean Marney is "touch and go".

Taylor was signed by Sam Allardyce from former club Bolton for 2.2million in July 2011 following West Ham's relegation from the Premier League. He spent three season at the Boleyn Ground making 90 appearances for the club.
