THE Reds have been handed a welcome double boost ahead of Saturday's clash with promotion-chasing Burnley.

Leading scorer Chris O’Grady and Norway international Marcus Pedersen have both been passed fit to make the trip over the Pennines.

Caretaker boss Micky Mellon is quietly confident the Reds can build on Tuesday night’s much-needed 2-1 away win over Brighton.

"Marcus and Chris have both trained this week so that’s a huge boost getting two absolute quality players back," Mellon said.

"We’re delighted everybody is going to be fit and available for selection."

The midweek victory was the Reds' first away win since February and ended a run of 16 games without a victory on the road.

Burnley, who topped the Championship table after an 11-game unbeaten run earlier in the season, have now not won in their last six matches.

Kick-off is at 3pm.
