Ali Akbar - got the winner at Hull in the last round
Only one 4th round tie has been played to date and that saw Manchester City win 4-2 at West Ham to become the first club through to the last sixteen but the whole round will be complete by Thursday of next week when that tie between Liverpool and Ipswich is played at Anfield.

For the Clarets, we’ll know our fate tomorrow when Fulham, coached by Paul Clement and Vic Betinelli, will be our opponents. They won 3-1 at Middlesbrough in the last round when Academy Manager John claimed they didn’t play all that well and were somewhat fortunate. Their scorers in that win were Bradley Hudson-Odoi(2) and Andrew Ottley.

We reached this round with a 3-2 win against Hull in a game played at North Ferriby with Cayne Hanley getting two goals and Ali Akbar netting the winner.

The Fulham game is at the Turf, kicks off at 7:00 p.m. and admission is £3 adults, £1 concessions. Please get down and support the lads if you can.
