Clarets will face Swindon

Last updated : 16 January 2007 By Tony Scholes
A number of Burnley fans were hoping for a Yeovil win tonight, to give them an opportunity of a visit to Huish Park, but a Swindon side that included first team regular Lukas Jutkiewicz were much the better side and were were 3-0 up by half time with two goals from Alex Rigley and one from Chris Allen. Jake Hyde added the fourth in the second half to complete the scoring and set up this fifth round tie.

It brings together again the two clubs who in April 2005 fought out the Youth Alliance Cup Final at Turf Moor with Swindon winning it on penalties after a 1-1 draw, but it was so close to being Burnley's night and only a late equaliser took the game into extra time after it looked as though a Cayne Hanley goal would be enough for us to win the trophy.

Joe Booth was the only player to miss in the shoot out in a Burnley side that included both Chris McCann and Kyle Lafferty in the starting line up, along with Marc Pugh and Neal Trotman who have also played league football this season.

Now the current batch of youngsters have the chance to go one better than the 2004/05 team and beat Swindon to go through to the quarter finals of the national competition, with the game to be played at the County Ground probably in two weeks time.

The revised fifth round draw now reads:

Manchester United or Southampton v Crystal Palace
Hull or Arsenal v Bristol City or Chester
Newcastle v Everton or Millwall
Sheffield Utd or Aston Villa v Middlesbrough
Liverpool v Reading or Coventry
Cardiff or Cambridge v RK Sunderland
Swindon v Burnley
Derby or Barnsley v Birmingham
