Come in Number 8-Carling Cup 3rd Round Draw

The third round draw for the Carling Cup will take place on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday at 12:15pm tomorrow (Saturday 26th August). Burnley will be in the hat after defeating Barnet 3-2 in the second round match at Turf Moor last Tuesday night, so watch out for ball number 8!

The Premier League big guns enter the competition now so the Clarets could be facing Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City or Liverpool.

If a local derby is your preference then how about Blackburn or maybe Bolton with Chris Eagles playing against us and maybe even Robbie Blake? How about Preston if they can beat Charlton?
