BURNLEY plans a cheeky request for an honor guard from their bitter East Lancs rival Blackburn.
Vincent Kompany’s men could claim the league title ahead of their April 25 trip to Ewood Park.
The champions are entitled to demand credit from their opponents.
And proud Burnley are keen to follow the matter.
However, it should cause an uproar in the ranks of the Rovers.
The two sides are bitter rivals.
Burnley travel to Ewood Park with three games left in the campaign.
Kompany’s team currently sits 13 points clear at the top of the championship and 17 points ahead of the playoffs.
The Manchester City legend has done an excellent job since arriving from Anderlecht last summer.
Burnley are well positioned to move straight back up to the Premier League after being relegated to the second tier last year.
