Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope faces an anxious wait to learn how long he might be on the sidelines after suffering what manager Sean Dyche fears is a "serious" shoulder injury in the Europa League match with Aberdeen.

The 26-year-old -- part of England's World Cup squad and who made his international debut against Costa Rica earlier this year -- had to go off after a collision with Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove.

"Nick has gone to hospital and it certainly looks more serious than not serious at this stage," said Dyche.

"It was a bit of a needless challenge.

"When he responds to stop the ball going in I think the lad has caught his arm and knocked it back, so we'll just have to wait and see."

Dyche's side -- appearing in European competition for the first time in over 50 years -- had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw in the Europa League qualifier first leg clash.
