Carling Cup-Oldham next!
A nice little local Lancashire derby to look forward to! After the Clarets were seeded in the draw, Oldham are to be the vistors to Turf Moor in our second round match of the Carling Cup to be played in the week commencing August 27. The most likely date for the tie is Tuesday 28th.
John Sheridan's League One side reached the second round with a 4-1 home win over Mansfield Town at Boundary Park earlier this week. The Clarets this week eventually triumphed away to Grimsby in a 4-2 penalty shoot-out after 1-1 in extra time.
