Burnley will be without top goalscorer Danny Ings for "a short spell" because of an ankle problem.
"It's good news - a pretty straight-forward ligament injury," manager Sean Dyche told BBC Radio Lancashire.
The 21-year-old has scored 25 goals this season and his partnership with Sam Vokes has been key to Burnley's rise to second in the table.
The Clarets have a 10-point cushion between themselves and third-placed Derby with 10 games to play.
Dyche continued: "It's still going to be a bit of time but not what we thought. There's nothing sinister, that's the main thing. We're quite happy and Danny's happy."
Ings endured an injury-plagued start to his career at Turf Moor after joining from Bournemouth for a reported fee of around £1m in 2011, suffering two serious knee injuries.
But he has flourished in 2013-14 and has also gained international recognition with England's Under-21 side.
