Gareth Southgate will sit in Burnley's Premier League clash with Fulham on Saturday because he thinks the camp in England was a shock for Tom Heaton.

The goalkeeper of Clarets came out of the cold to replace Joe Hart for their morale-boosting 2-0 victory over West Ham United last month and was again in the club because of their 2-1 victory over Huddersfield, a result that the men of Sean Dyche raised from the relegation zone of the Premier League.

While Nick Pope returned after an injury and won the gloves for last season's 1-0 FA Cup victory against Barnsley, Heaton is expected to be the go-ahead for Claudio Ranieri.

Southgate is a great admirer of Heaton, 32, who had lost 476 days without top flight action before retiring.

The ex-Cardiff and Bristol City man was named this summer on the standby list for the English World Cup squadron, despite the fact that he did not play a competitive game since September thanks to a dislocated shoulder.

Southgate is set to be joined by Under 21 boss Aidy Boothroyd on Turf Moor.

Sportsmail understands that Boothroyd Burnley's teenage winger will keep a close eye on Dwight McNeil.

The 19-year-old, who started his career at Manchester United, started the Clarets last three games and scored in their victory over the Hammers and won two man-of-the-match awards.

He has been involved in England under 20 but has yet to take a step forward to the Under 21s.
