When the draw was made last night for the 3rd round of the Capital One Cup, Burnley's reward was a trip to League One Swindon Town.
Swindon, under the management of Paolo Di Canio, were last season's League Two champions and have, to date, made an unbeaten start to the new season. They've already beaten two higher division teams in the cup, beating Brighton 3-0 at home and then winning 4-3 at Stoke on Tuesday.
We've not played each other since the 1995/96 season when both games ended in 0-0 draws and our only League cup meeting was the semi-final of 1968/69 when they went on to beat Arsenal in the final.
There'll be more on that game ahead of this tie which will be played in week commencing 24th September with the most likely date being Tuesday 25th.
The full draw, which saw the introduction of the seven teams involved in Europe, is:
