It’s an away draw for Burnley in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Swindon Town will be the hosts for Burnley’s third round tie, with Paulo Di Canio’s side looking for another scalp after accounting for Stoke City this week. Having knocked out Brighton 3-0 in the opening round, they will be confident of booking a place in the fourth round.

The Clarets have come through two matches to get to the third round, triumphing 3-1 at Port Vale before this week’s penalties win over Plymouth Argyle.

Charlie Austin will be looking to keep up his outstanding start to the season. He’s scored in every match apart from Huddersfield away so far. It’s a big game for Charlie as well, as he returns to his old club. He’d love to bag another at the County Ground.

Town have yet to concede a goal in League One this season, following up a 0-0 opening day draw at Hartlepool United with home wins over Crawley and MK Dons. They are currently third in the table, level on points with the top two.

It is sure to be a tricky tie for the Clarets, who will be looking to advance into the fourth round and kickstart what has been a slow start to the season after the opening day heroics against Bolton Wanderers.

Swindon Town v Burnley will take place in the last week of September.

    Not a bad draw, one that genuinely could go either way!

      I’m not confident. They have lots of momentum. But Austin will definitely, definitely score. Assuming we haven’t sold him.
