new Clarets signing Craig Parker
is expected to be out until November with a broken foot.
"He's a slightly different player from some of the other central midfielders we have and his fractured metatarsal has come at a frustrating time for him," said boss Glenn Pennyfather.
"However, we'll make sure he's well looked after as we're expecting big things from him and, when he returns, it will be like a new signing for us."
