Clarets strike duo Andre Gray and Sam Vokes have been included among a six-man list for the PFA fans’ player of the year award in the Sky Bet Championship.
The pair, who netted 40 league goals between them this term as Sean Dyche’s side were promoted to the top flight as champions, were nominated by a panel made up of Sky Sports pundits Ian Holloway, Peter Beagrie and Paul Merson, Mike Riley, general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke, chairman of the Football Supporters’ Federation.
“Yeah it’s been prolific, definitely,” said £6m man Gray about his partnership with the Welshman. “We clicked straight away, we’re friends off the pitch as well. It’s worked throughout the season and I’m sure it will keep working in the Premier League.”
The Turf Moor favourites are joined by Fulham forward Ross McCormack, Brentford midfielder Alan Judge, Middlesbrough defender Daniel Ayala and Sheffield Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri.
Voting closes at 7 p.m. on Wednesday with the winner announced at 8 p.m.
