Sean Dyche has been short-listed for the Barclays Manager of the Season Award.
The Burnley boss has been nominated for the Premier League prize along with Chelsea’s title-winning manager Antonio Conte, Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino, Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, Tony Pulis of West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City’s Paul Clement.
Public voting will close on midnight on Wednesday, 17 May with a panel of experts then sitting the following day to ratify a decision.
The winner will be announced at the League Managers’ Association annual dinner on Monday, 22 May.
Dyche has earned his place on the short-list by steering the Clarets to top-flight safety in their first season back in the Premier League – securing successive seasons of top-flight football at Turf Moor for the first time since 1975.
And Burnley could finish as high as 12th if they win their final game at home to West Ham on Sunday.
Dyche, appointed Burnley boss in October, 2012 and twice a promotion winner in his time at Turf Moor, led the Clarets in a league game for the 200th time at Bournemouth last Saturday.
