Clarets suffer double blow

Burnley suffered a double injury blow in the 2-0 defeat Wolves, with both Clarke Carlisle and Steven Caldwell picking up groin injuries.

Carlisle lasted little more than 30 minutes of the Molineux reverse, while Caldwell limped off with just over 20 minutes to play.

Clarets boss Owen Coyle told the club's official website:"I think it was very obvious that we lost two terrible goals.

"The first one there were probably two or three individual mistakes and at this level you have to defend well.

"I don't take anything away from Wolves because Doyle and Ebanks-Blake were a handful all day. Partly that's because they're very good players, but partly because our centre-backs took knocks.

"Clarke injured himself early in the game and that contrived to play a part in the first goal and Steven felt his groin in the first half, which was probably something to do with the second goal.

"I believe we would have defended both better, but we didn't and found ourselves two goals down."
