ACCRINGTON will be a town divided on Sunday when Championship side Burnley face Premier League Blackburn in the FA Cup fifth round clash at Turf Moor.
And two of Hyndburn's Premiership stars are opting for different winners in the BBC televised game (ko 1.40pm).
Accrington-born Richard Chaplow, who recently moved from Burnley to West Brom in a £1.5m deal, is obviously backing a Clarets victory.
And Great Harwood's Brett Ormerod, the former Rovers trainee who starred for Stanley and is now at Southampton, is going for the Ewood outfit.
"I predict a 1-0 win for Burnley with Ian Moore scoring the winner," said Chaplow, despite Blackburn winning both times when the two sides met in Division One in 2000/2001.
"I am hoping to get to the game as it such a huge match. I am training on Sunday in the morning but I want to get back and support the lads.
"Burnley definitely have a good chance. They have scored a few times of late and have experienced players who have played in the Premiership like Tony Grant, Frank Sinclair, and John McGreal while Ian Moore has been around a long time. If he gets a chance, I am sure he will stick it away.
"It will be a good atmosphere and with Burnley being at home, in their own surroundings and on their pitch, it should mean they settle down easily and hopefully they won't get caught up in all the hype that goes with these games.
"My lasting memory of the last derbies is a Kevin Ball very hard tackle on David Dunn."
Chaplow has not seen too much of the Premiership, being on the bench for his opening Baggies game, but says Burnley can do what they did to Liverpool when Chaplow was still a part of the Claret's side - and see off a top flight club.
"The Premiership is definitely different - there are obviously a lot more quality players, more time on the ball, any mistakes are punished and the forwards are sharper.
"But we did it to Liverpool and Burnley are scoring goals at the moment and doing well at the back so it promises to be an interesting game.
"Blackburn have been struggling in front of goal but they have quality players and Paul Dickov will be a big threat for them."
Ormerod, meanwhile, tips his former club to win the derby battle.
"I will be watching it on television in Southampton and I have to back Blackburn, I was a Blackburn fan, and will go for a 1-0 win to Rovers with a Paul Dickov goal," said the Saints player who has been on loan at Leeds this season and linked with a move to Wigan.
"I remember watching the last time the two sides met at Turf Moor at a pub in Great Harwood and it divides families.
"I was at Blackpool at the time and Blackburn won 2-0 and there was a lot of friendly banter between the two sides' fans at the end of the game.
"There will be a lot of families sat at the opposite ends of the rooms watching it on television!
"But it is a one-off. It is a derby game and anything can happen.
"It is up in the air and Championship sides have done well against the Premiership teams in the cup this season.
"Blackburn have a lot of good players and Dickov has got quite a few goals for them. I am plumping for Blackburn simply because I was a Rovers fan growing up."
Ormerod, an FA Cup finalist in 2003, is looking to help his own side progress in the competition as the Saints are at home to Brentford.
