The winners of Fulham v Burnley will host Bournemouth or Leeds United’s conquerors Crawley Town.

Burnley, then in the second tier, knocked out Jean Tigana’s top flight Fulham 3-0 in a Turf Moor replay in 2003, after a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.

The Clarets also sent the Cottagers out in 1978, 1962 - on their way to the final - 1927 and 1924, losing to the Londoners in 1912.

Burnley have faced Bournemouth in the cup before, winning 2-0 at Turf Moor in 2005, against a side including Wade Elliott, Garreth O’Connor, John Spicer and Brian Stock, and also saw off the Cherries in 1961 and 1966.

The Clarets have never faced Crawley Town.
