Pompey Draw Burnley

Last updated : 01 September 2007 By Jim Bonner
If Pompey are going to win the Carling Cup this year, they will have to go through what looks like a tricky tie away to Championship side Burnley.

The Clarets got to this stage of the competition following a 1-1 draw away to Grimsby, which they won on penalties and then a 3-0 hammering of Oldham Athletic at Turf Moor in Round 2.

So it's a long weeknight trip to Lancashire in possibly one of the most uninspiring ties of all time. It could be worse though, it could have been Newcastle again!

The tie will be played the week commencing 24th September.
