Wells enjoys run out in Preston friendly

Nahki Wells topped up his fitness in a behind-closed-doors game against Preston North End at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

The Burnley striker was among a number of first-team players to feature in the match, including strikers Sam Vokes and Chris Wood, goalkeeper Tom Heaton, winger Georges-Kévin Nkoudou and defender James Tarkowski.

Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It was important to get more minutes into the players. Woody got 90, Tom Heaton another 90, Tarky got 90, we're really pleased with that. GK [Nkoudou], it was more about him continuing to adapt to what we do and how we are, Nahki just to get minutes on and Dean Marney as well.

“We were slowly but surely getting people back but now we're speeding up and getting bodies back. In the thinking they're ready. They're definitely fit enough to be considered.”

Burnley, seventh in the Premier League table, are at home to Everton tomorrow.

Wells, the Bermuda forward has made seven substitute appearances since joining Burnley from top-flight rivals Huddersfield Town for £5 million during the transfer window in August.
