THE Clarets will play their FA Youth Cup fourth-round tie at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

Burnley go to the home of the Premier League champions this coming Thursday night (kick-off 7pm).

The fixture was switched to the Etihad after the playing surface at the original venue – Stockport County’s Edgeley Park – was declared unfit following County’s recent fixture programme.

As a result, Terry Pashley’s young Clarets will get the chance to make it a famous double after playing at Old Trafford in the last round.

Burnley – who reached the semi-finals for the first time in 34 years last season – stunned the ten-times winners with a 4-3 win after extra-time and now look to pull off another shock against a City side which beat Sunderland in round three.

Admission prices are £3 adults and £1 concessions.
