Thought it would take something special to beat Dubravka tonight and he provided it.

Last 2 games he's looked back to his best. It's weird, he looks a completely different player in terms of the way he moves and the speed he has when he plays well. He must be really difficult to play against when he's on top of his game, he's so clever and dynamic.

I'd love to see him use his right foot every now again

The ball is always on a string, too, it’s his close control that is a cut above, plus he always has his head up

Had 2 similar chances against Forest, so seems he's getting in the right positions once more and I think he's going to get 7 - 10 goals overall this season if he stays fit.

Definitely feels like he just wasn't match fit and sharp for what Dyche demands, and understandably so after missing the start of the season.

Got a sweet left peg, but he's a proper grafter... One of my favourite players these days.

Yeah, you never really feel like he's ever gonna lose the ball do you, when he is in possession of it, which is a huge advantage.

Dwight McNeil dribbling the ball at speed, down the wing, is a thing of beauty.

In a back 5 he didn't seem that restrained positionally against Burnley, he was one of the more advanced players at least notionally at LWB.

Fingers and toes crossed that whatever it is isn't as bad as it looked.

Our luck hasn't been great of late though, probably have to expect a long absence.

Think it will be a broken ankle to be honest.

Didn't even see what happened but when they don't show replays it's never usually good. Although when he was lifted on to the stretcher he seemed fairly calm and wasn't on gas or anything. Never like it when the resident experts give their opinion an injury before the medics are even on the pitch so lets hope it's nothing too serious.

They did show one replay, it looked like his foot might have got caught under Mykolenko. Just have to wait and see, sometimes these things look worse at the time.

Dyche said he was ok and they’re just waiting for it to settle down.

Didn’t sound that serious from that but you never know really.
