Home tie if we beat Millwall
We are off to The Den next week to play Millwall in the third round of the League Cup and should we be successful then a home tie awaits us in round four against either the holders Manchester City or Bournemouth.
We’ve played Manchester City just once previously in the League Cup. That came in the 1999/2000 season when they beat us 6-0 in aggregate in the first round, winning the first leg 5-0 at Maine Road before a 1-0 victory against us at the Turf. Bournemouth and Burnley, however, have never met previously in this competition.
The fourth round tie will be played in week commencing 28th September.
