Despite not being regarded among the favourites to secure promotion to the Premier League at the start of the campaign, the second-placed Clarets are on the verge of claiming a place in next season's top flight.
Their success has been particularly lauded due to the fact that manager Sean Dyche has used just 22 players this term.
However, despite having a relatively small squad at his disposal, Akinbiyi has told Sports Mole that his ex-Bristol City teammate Dyche has some quality options to select from.
"Sean Dyche has always been a focused guy and it seems that he has taken that into his managerial role. He's got a small squad there, but in terms of quality, he's assembled the best squad that they've had there in a very long time. He has done a remarkable job," said Akinbiyi.
Two victories from their remaining four matches will guarantee promotion for Burnley.
