What channel is Burnley vs Wolves on? Kick-off time, TV & stream details, latest team news

It’s a huge game at both ends of the table for these two sides.

Wolves’ quest for a place among Europe’s elite resumes this weekend when they travel to Turf Moor to take on managerless Burnley on Sunday.

The Clarets parted company with Sean Dyche after 10 years in charge last week and will be hoping the change brings with it the desired effect when Bruno Lage’s men come to town this weekend.

A win is a must for both teams albeit at the opposite ends of the table.

Three points for Wolves will see them close the gap on the top seven whilst Burnley need wins at this point if they are to survive another season in the Premier League.

When and where is the game?

The game takes place at Burnley’s home of Turf Moor on Sunday 24th April.

Kick-off is scheduled for 14:00 (BST).

Is Burnley vs Wolves on TV?

No. Despite taking place on Sunday afternoon, the game hasn’t been selected for broadcast by any of the main broadcasters.

Chelsea vs West Ham United, which also kicks off at 14:00 is the game that will be aired on Sky Sports.

Who is the match referee?

Anthony Taylor will take charge of Sunday’s contest with Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn his assistants.

David Coote is on fourth official duties whilst Mike Dean is in charge of VAR, assisted by Harry Lennard.

Taylor has officiated 36 games so far this season including World Cup qualifiers and Champions League fixtures among his Premier League duties.

He’s handed out 136 yellow cards across those games, four straight reds and awarded 11 penalty kicks.

Team news

Burnley will be without Ashley Westwood who suffered a nasty ankle fracture last time out whilst Erik Pieters (knee) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) both remain unavailable.

Ben Mee, who has been appointed as part of the temporary coaching staff also remains out.

Wolves on the other hand have been boosted by the early return to training of influential midfielder Ruben Neves.

Neves suffered medial collateral ligament damage during the 3-2 defeat to Leeds United in March but has made a quicker than expected return to the grass. The game versus Burnley, however, should come a little too soon for the Portguese man.

Bruno Lage added that Daniel Podence and Max Kilman will also miss the contest through injury.
