Sean Dyche has confirmed George Boyd and Stephen Ward will be fit for the match at Manchester United on Saturday but Steven Defour is ‘touch and go.’

We’ll also have Andre Gray back too after his four-match ban ended.

A knee injury kept Boyd out of the Everton win, the first Premier League match he had missed this season, but he’ll probably be back for the match at Old Trafford.

Ward has shaken off ‘a knock’ with Dyche telling the Official Website.

‘Wardy is fine. I think Boydy will be fine. He trained today for the first time, though, so we will see how he reacts tomorrow. Steven Defour is touch and go. That will be partly our decision to make sure he`s right and really well enough if we do that.’

The added firepower of having Dyche back was also welcomed with Dyche adding.

‘We want to have that ‘scratch your head moment of ‘which way are we going to go with it? And we have shown a bit of flexibility with that, which we felt we had to do.

‘Everyone knows I like to play with two strikers. But you have to format the team you think can operate to get you the result. We have changed that slightly and I think it`s gone pretty well so far.’
