and live on Freeview channel 276
Burnley claimed a comfortable 3-1 win over Crawley Town in the Carabao Cup third round last night. Despite the visitors taking the lead at Turf Moor, Ashley Barnes grabbed an equaliser only minutes later before Anass Zaroury’s brace sent the Clarets into the fourth round draw.
The likes of Bournemouth, Leicester and MK Dons also progressed, while Bristol City were knocked out by a dominant Lincoln City and Gillingham caused an upset against Brentford as they won on penalties. The draw for the next round will take place following Manchester United vs Aston Villa on Thursday night, which is due to kick off at 8pm.
While Burnley were competing in the Cup, a number of Championship matches took place but mostly went in their favour. Sheffield United were unable to move up to the top of the table after they were narrowly beaten by Rotherham United at Bramall Lane, while QPR also suffered a home defeat to Huddersfield Town.
