When will Lyle Foster return? Burnley striker sent off against Nottingham Forest

Burnley striker Lyle Foster is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after his red card against Nottingham Forest.

The Tricky Trees and Clarets played out an entertaining 1-1 draw but things ended very badly for the young striker.

With time ticking away, Foster threw an elbow into Ryan Yates’ ribs off the ball.

The referee, Robert Jones, missed it. But VAR didn’t, and he was sent off.

And now Burnley are set to be without their top Premier League goalscorer for some big games.

When will Lyle Foster return for Burnley?

Foster was sent off for violent conduct, meaning he faces a three-game domestic ban.

The 23-year-old didn’t deny a clear goalscoring chance, so unless the ban is overturned on appeal, the Clarets are set to be without a key player in Foster.

Foster will miss Saturday’s game at home to Manchester United, live on talkSPORT.

He then will be unable to play in the Carabao Cup tie against Salford City before missing Burnley’s trip to St James’ Park to face Newcastle.
