Clarets To Host Non-League Lincoln in FA Cup

30 January 2017

Burnley will play non-league side Lincoln City at Turf Moor in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Clarets were first out of the hat when the draw for the last 16 was made in London on Monday night.

And Sean Dyche's side were paired with the National League leaders, who booked their place in round five for the first time in 115 years with a home win over Championship leaders Brighton last Saturday.

The Red Imps have also knocked out League clubs Ipswich and Oldham in their history-making run with two non-league teams - Sutton United being the other - reaching this stage of the competition for the first time.

The Clarets reached the last 16 for the first time since 2011 with a 2-0 home win over Bristol City last Saturday - their sixth successive victory at Turf Moor - and are yet to conceded a goal in the competition this season.

Lincoln signed Burnley winger Josh Ginnelly on loan for the remainder of the season on Monday, but the teenager is cup-tied following an earlier loan spell with Walsall.

The ties are due to be played over the weekend of 17-20 February.
