SEAN Dyche admits he will be keeping an eye on the League One and League Two play-offs.

Two former Clarets will be bidding for promotion when the bottom two tiers of the EFL complete their campaigns in the coming weeks.

Joey Barton’s Fleetwood are gunning to seal a spot in the Championship while Michael Duff is hoping to take Cheltenham out of the fourth tier.

Their seasons have been curtailed after Tuesday’s EFL vote but both are now planning for play-off campaigns.

Fleetwood will take on Wycombe, beneficiaries of the points-per-game system, in League One, while the Robins face Northampton over two legs in League Two.

Both bosses have enjoyed impressive seasons in the dugout and will be looking to finish on a high.

“I keep tabs on him (Duff) and Joey because they’re ex-players who have done brilliantly for me and for Burnley and now they’re doing it in management,” said Dyche.

“It’s good for him (Duff). I’ve spoken to him a few times during this break and he’s waiting to hear about different scenarios so we’ll see how they go.

“Everyone has got different abilities and different ways of doing things, but he was rounded enough and he certainly had a deep enough career and enough experiences.

“It’s then all about how you put that into your coaching style.

“I thought he did that very well at Burnley and now he’s doing a good job at Cheltenham.

“Management is different now, there are that many different styles and types that it’s no longer obvious who is the managerial type.

“He’s got his own style and he’ll be working on that, as we all do.”

Barton posted on Twitter after the EFL vote: “I’m a bit gutted we didn’t get to finish our season.

“We really fancied our chances of automatic promotion with nine games remaining. Congratulations to @Coventry_City and @OfficialRUFC on promotion. Commiserations to @TranmereRovers @theposhofficial @SunderlandAFC.”
