FL72 - Preview: 5pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 1

The promotion race in the Sky Bet Championship is engrossing and a man right in the thick of it will be welcomed into the FL72 café on Thursday evening.

Sean Dyche's Burnley sit second in their division, eight points in arrears of rampant Leicester but, more importantly, five in front of third-placed Derby following their 2-0 triumph over the Rams last time out.

So, is a place in the Premier League on for a side tipped by many for a campaign of struggle back in August - and is the word 'promotion' banned at the Clarets' Gawthorpe Hall training ground? Dyche will reveal all...

The Turf Moor troop's next game will have added spice as they go head-to-head with local rivals Blackburn, live on Sky Sports 1 from midday on Sunday, so the ex-Watford chief should have plenty to say on that, too.

We will get the Rovers view on the Lancashire grudge match as well, courtesy of goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who is back between the Blackburn sticks following a long spell on the sidelines with firstly a back injury and latterly a blood clot on the lung.

Friday's Sky Live encounter, though, sees Bury host League Two promotion chasers Rochdale, meaning there will be a reunion for the club's respective managers, David Flitcroft and Keith Hill.

Flitcroft formerly served as Hill's assistant at Rochdale and the pair teamed up again at Barnsley, so we will discover how the ex-colleagues are preparing to appear in different dugouts at Gigg Lane.

There was plenty of banter, so make sure you don't miss it!

For all that, plus an extensive look at this weekend's Football League games, catch FL72-Preview, 5pm and 10.15pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 1 or at 8pm on Sky Sports 3.
