Carling Cup-Tis Tykes at Oakwell

The draw for the third round of the Carling Cup was made today with the Clarets in the hat after beating Hartlepool United 2-1 at Victoria Park in the midweek second round clash.

Burnley will be away once more and face a trip over the Pennines to play Barnsley at Oakwell in the week commencing 21st September.

With no seeding this time round, this might be considered a poor draw for the Clarets and the Tykes will certainly be up for this one and will want to claim another Premier League scalp.

Barnsley of course shocked the football world in 2008 beating Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield in the FA Cup before seeing off Chelsea 1-0 at Oakwell in the quater final of the same competition.

The Clarets will also be wary of Barnsley after the Tykes completed the double over us last season in the Championship. A thrilling 3-2 away defeat at Oakwell after being 3-0 down back in November 2008 was followed by a very disappointing 2-1 defeat at Turf Moor. Mind you that was on Boxing Day in the middle of the traditional Christmas slump!

Burnley will need to be on their guard but should be strong enough to defeat Barnsley this time. The Tykes are struggling badly in the Championship at the moment and are propping up the table in bottom place with just one point from five games.It didn't get any better for them today either after their manager Simon Davey departed "by mutual consent" after two-and-a-half years in charge at Oakwell following a 3-1 home defeat by Reading Barnsley got the first goal in that game too and who should score it but former Clarets striker, Andy Gray recently signed from Charlton.

Elsewhere, Spurs who knocked the Clarets out of this competition at the semi-final stage last season face local rivals Preston at Deepdale. Blackburn Rovers will also probably be uninspired by an away trip to Nottingham Forest whilst Wolves have drawn the short straw and play Manchester United at Old Trafford. The most intriguing tie is possibly Leeds versus Liverpool. A juicy match if ever there was one and one that will bring back the old rivalry of the seventies when these two clubs were often slugging it out in the top flight.

Oh well, not one I would have wanted! Suppose it's a change having to play all the underdogs now instead of being one! Revenge would be sweet though after their double over us last season.

Talking before the game yesterday we were musing how refreshing it was to play some diferent teams this year rather than clubs like Barnsley. How little we knew that in a TV studio not too many miles away the fickle finger of football had other ideas. Tough draw but a game we can win.
