Boothroyd backed to fire up City

Boothroyd backed to fire up City

Graham Alexander returns to his hometown on Saturday looking for Burnley to improve on their poor away form and start to put down a marker for an immediate return to the top-flight.

He knows however that despite the Sky Blues recent hiccup that the Clarets are in for a tough game.

"It`s always a hard place to go and Saturday will be no different,' said the veteran.

"Aidy Boothroyd knows the division inside out and he`s an experienced manager, even though he`s relatively young.

"He knows the division, he knows how to make teams hard to beat, and Saturday`s going to be that way.

"They`ve had three defeats on the trot, but I`ve spoken with Clarke (Carlisle) about Aidy Boothroyd and he`s a really positive person so he`ll be looking to win three points on Saturday.'

Daniel Fox is ruled out of a return to the Ricoh Arena through injury but Jack Cork is set to play. The on-loan midfielder made his first start for England Under-21's in midweek.

For City meanwhile Clive Platt and Keiren Westwood are both fit for the game.
