The Clarets go into the match at fellow Lancashire club Blackpool with an eight-point lead over third-placed Derby County and will achieve promotion if they win and Derby fail to beat Doncaster Rovers.
Hosts Blackpool, meanwhile, go into the final four games just two points above the bottom three.
Caretaker manager Barry Ferguson selected himself in their last match against Leeds United and the veteran Scot could do so again for the visit of Burnley.
The home side has won the last five matches between these two sides, with Burnley edging it 2-1 in the reverse fixture in December.
Possible starting lineups
Blackpool: Gilks; McMahon, MacKenzie, Cathcart, Robinson; Ferguson, Basham; Perkins, Bishop, Halliday; Goodwillie
Burnley: Heaton; Tripper, Shackell, Duff, Mee; Arfield, Marney, Jones, Kightly; Barnes, Ings
Sports Mole says: 1-3
