Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists title rivals Leicester have already done enough to book their place back in the Barclays Premier League ahead of their big Sky Bet Championship clash at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Clarets trail Nigel Pearson's men by three points and could conceivably go top with a win which would also take them a huge step closer to a return to the top flight.

Dyche, whose side go into the game with a 10-point lead over third-placed QPR, said: "I don't think promotion is (Leicester's) challenge - I think that's done for them.

"But as regards the title that's a different thing. We have got our own designs on what we want to do and we have got to stick with that mantra."

Burnley are without midfielder Dean Marney who begins a two-game suspension while top scorer Danny Ings is once again expected to be sidelined with an ankle injury.

Leicester report no new injury worries from their midweek draw against Yeovil and striker Chris Wood paid tribute to the form of his side's title rivals.
