Accrington Stanley are drooling over a plum tie against their near neighbours after being drawn at home to Premier League Burnley in the EFL Cup second round.
It will be the first time the clubs have played each other competitively.
The draw against the Clarets at the Wham Stadium on Tuesday, August 23 is rich reward for Stanley after they overcame League One Bradford City in a dramatic penalty shootout on Tuesday night.
The dream tie means players Chris Eagles, Shay McCartan and Steven Hewitt could line up against their former side.
Stanley chairman Andy Holt said he was thrilled with the draw.
He said: “I am delighted, I think it’s fantastic for the two clubs, especially because a lot of Burnley fans are also Accrington fans - it’s their second team for many people.
“I don’t know when Burnley last played Accrington competitively, it’s a first since the reformation. It’s going to be a bit of history as well and I think it’s great for Accrington.”
Andy added: “Hopefully it will be a really good day for everybody, it should be a bit of a carnival and a really good family affair.”
Stanley, who have made an upbeat start to the new season, progressed in the competition 11-10 on penalties after the first-round tie ended goalless after extra-time.
