Burnley vs Sheffield UnitedEngland Championship, KO: 20:00 Apr 10, 2023, Turf Moor
BURNLEY have secured a return to the English Premier League at the first time of asking with an incredible seven games to go under the management of Vincent Kompany after a win on Friday night at Middlesbrough sparked off scenes of celebration.
And they will be welcomed back to Turf Moor as heroes on Monday night when they face their nearest challengers Sheffield United who look certain to join them.
In a league renowned for its gruelling 46-game season, Kompany's men have been extremely consistent and their promotion has been all but guaranteed for a long time.
The Blades can still catch Them at the top and if they were to win in Lancashire, they would cut the gap at the top to eightpoints, but surely the title will also be heading to Burnley too.
Burnley will want to put on a show in front of their fans, but they won't get it easy against the FA Cup semi-finalists who have themselves won four in a row.
Paul Heckingbottom may have been a flop at Hibs, but he's done a fine job this season with the Yorkshire club and both these clubs will surely be celebrating soon.
