BURNLEY have joined the race for Blackpool boss Ian Holloway.

The Clarets have been without a manager since Eddie Howe’s return to Bournemouth, while the Seasiders boss has also been heavily linked with the vacancy at Blackburn Rovers.

And last night speculation was growing that both Pool’s Championship rivals from east Lancashire could make a move for Holloway.

Rovers have seen approaches for Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinlay turned down in recent days and are believed to be set to switch their interest back to Bloomfield Road, and their arch-rivals Burnley are also keen on testing the water before the weekend.

Holloway showed no signs of unrest after last night’s 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest and talked openly of his future plans at Blackpool.

But he is yet to totally rule out a move to another club and wouldn’t be drawn on the matter.

“Make of it all what you will,” he said. “At least there’s one of the jobs I’m not in line for – good luck to Dougie (Freedman) at Bolton. Am I going to Sainsbury’s tomorrow, I don’t know?”
