QPR v Burnley-FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

QPR v Burnley-FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

The Clarets have been given an early return to Loftus Road to play QPR in the third round of the FA Cup.

Burnley beat the West London side 2-1 just two weeks ago in the same week they knocked neighbours, Chelsea out of the Carling Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Loftus Road has been a happy hunting ground for the Clarets in recent seasons with Andrew Cole's hat-trick helping them to a 4-2 victory only last season. Ade Akinbiyi linking well with Cole up front that day also scored himself.

I cant help thinking though that this draw seems nothing more than an anti-climax after our exploits in the Carling Cup with hopefully more still to come.

Third round ties will be played on the weekend of January 3rd and 4th,

The full draw is as follows:

Portsmouth v Bristol City
Sheffield Wed v Fulham
Preston v Liverpool
Birmingham v Wolves
West Ham v Barnsley
Middlesbrough v Barrow
Hull City v Newcastle
Hartlepool v Stoke
Chelsea v Southend
Manchester City v Nottingham Forest
Cardiff v Reading
Ipswich v Chesterfield or Droylesden
Charlton v Norwich
West Brom v Peterborough or Tranmere
Torquay v Blackpool
Leyton Orient v Sheffield United
Southampton v Manchester United
Millwall v Carlisle or Crewe
Histon v Swansea
Forest Green Rovers v Derby
QPR v Burnley
Leicester v Crystal Palace
Tottenham v Wigan
Morecambe or Cheltenham v Doncaster
Arsenal v Plymouth
Notts County or Kettering v Eastwood Town
Bournemouth or Blyth v Blackburn
Macclesfield v Everton
Watford v Scunthorpe
Sunderland v Bolton
Coventry v Kidderminster
Gillingham or Stockport v Aston Villa
