First Goalscorer Nathan Tella 5/1 with Betway

It’s been a stellar first season in English football management for Vincent Kompany, who has, not only transformed Burnley’s reputation as a ball-playing team, but also confirmed the club’s place back in the Premier League for next season. The ex-Man City defender is now just one win away from the Championship title.

The Clarets have stormed to first in the second tier under Kompany following their relegation last term. For much of the campaign, promotion appeared a formality, but their fate was only confirmed earlier this month after a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough. They will now look to wrap up the table at Ewood Park.

It will feel equally as satisfying for Burnley if they can win the title at the home of their fierce rivals, Blackburn. Their El Lanclasico adversaries are chasing the play-offs in eighth, so they will be eyeing up an upset and to delay Burnley’s title celebrations. Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side are outside the play-offs on goal difference.

Blackburn vs Burnley match stats

Josh Brownhill has been at the heart of everything good about Burnley this season. The tenacious midfielder combines style and substance to keep Kompany’s side ticking over, but also providing a real edge and bite in the middle third. The 27-year-old has provided the second-most assists of any central midfielder in the Championship this season (eight), but he has also conceded fourth-most fouls of any player (62), underlying both aspects of his play.
