Burnley manager Sean Dyche has admitted his faces a selection headache after Jay Rodriguez's four-goal performance against Rochdale on Thursday.

The English striker took his chance by scoring all of Burnley's goals in the 4-1 victory, which moved his team into the Carabao Cup fourth-round.

"Jay spoke for himself with his performance and goals," Dyche told the club's website.

"He has come back super-fit and is never far away from the team.

"Barnes and Woody historically have been an effective partnership. There are always decisions to be made, it's not just about scoring a few goals. Everything is considered.

"However, it is very helpful trait for striker to score four goals in a game, no matter who you are playing against.

"But strikers are important to any side and I think we have four very good ones."
