It's Hartlepool Away in the Carling Cup!
Burnley will face Hartlepool United at Victoria Park in the second round of the Carling Cup.
The game will be played on either the Tueday night of August 25th or Wednesday night of the 26th.
In the Carling Cup first round tie, League One side Hartlepool secured a 1-0 win against Coventry at the Ricoh tonight with Adam Boyd scoring towards the end of the first period of extra time. They hung on to defeat the Championship side and must now be relishing a Premier League team coming to their ground! Eat your heart out Jeff Stelling!
The Pools embarrassed the Clarets at Turf Moor in the same competition back in August 2006 coming away with a 1-0 victory. So revenge would be sweet but then it could be another banana skin just waiting to trip us up!
