Burnley could have a party without the seaside



Burnley could be promoted back into the Premier League on Good Friday against Blackpool (5.15pm). 

Keiran Trippier should be fir for Sean Dyche's side

Keiran Trippier returns from a spell on the sidelines, and may be fit for Sean Dyche’s side

A win at Bloomfield Road against a Blackpool side battling the drop, combined with anything less than a win for Derby at the Keepmoat Stadium against Doncaster, will see the Clarets back into the top flight.

Burnley have no new injury concerns with Kieran Trippier and Danny Ings returning from injury and Dean Marney coming back from a two match ban in the past week. Sam Vokes remains sidelined for the rest of the season with an injury he picked up against Leicester City.

Burnley require 5 points from 4 games to gain promotion if Derby win all of their remaining games, but it is an equally important game for Blackpool at the other end of the table.

The Tangerine’s sit in 20th, only two points above the drop zone, with Charlton Athletic having a game in hand who sit 21st. Both teams have to play each other on the last game of the season. Blackpool have a particularly difficult run in, facing Burnley and Charlton at Bloomfield Road as well as travelling to Brighton and Wigan.

This game means just as much to Blackpool as it does to Burnley.
