Burnley manager Sean Dyche says he will continue to rotate his goalkeepers during the friendly with Nice on Tuesday. Dyche has yet to decide on his number one for the new season and has two more friendlies before the first game of the campaign against Southampton.
Club captain Tom Heaton has played 135 minutes in pre-season, while Nick Pope has been on the pitch slightly longer for 180 minutes. However, Joe Hart has featured the most and played 225 minutes of action as he tries to prove his worth at Turf Moor.
Pope has been struggling with a tight groin but Dyche is ready to give all of them a chance if the opportunity arises. He told Burnley Express: “We will balance it out with the keepers. Joe got 90 the other night, so we will find that balance.
“I thought Joe was excellent the other night (at Fleetwood), I really do and I thought the crowd responded to it. “He is a top keeper, as is Tom and Popey. It is a great challenge to have, but it is a challenge. Only one can play.”
