The game will be the first competitive meeting between the sides. Burnley last played Accrington in 1893, winning 4-0.

The Clarets have failed to advance beyond their first hurdle in the competition for the last two seasons, exiting at Port Vale a year ago, after being knocked out at home by Sheffield Wednesday in 2014.
