It's Canaries at Carrow Road in FA Cup

It's Canaries at Carrow Road in FA Cup

The FA Cup third round draw was made moments ago and Burnley will play Premier League Norwich City at Carrow Road next month.

The tie will be played on the weekend of 7 and 8th January 2012.

This is probably a fixture most Clarets fans, who now face a long journey to East Anglia would have preferred not to get and it will certainly be tough against Paul Lambert's side.

We played Norwich City of course only last season on their way to automatic promotion as Championship runners-up. We did pretty well against them too, earning a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road and beating them 2-1 at Turf Moor.

What do you think about the draw and our chances? Let us know below the article

What a weekend this is turning out to be. A fabulous win at West Ham and now a game against Norwich where I used to live and have so many fine memories. Think I might go out this afternoon and see if I can bump into Salma Hayek. The way my luck is anything could happen !

Not a great draw but one I will probably go to living in East Anglia. Always seem to go to Norwich in bloody winter though!

Poor draw in my opinion - but I may still make the trip down.

Well beyond my geography. So, time to start concentrating on the league for me. But give it a go on the day lads.
