Lincoln draw Premier League Burnley in FA Cup fifth round

This story is over

Lincoln City will play Premier League Burnley at Turf Moor in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Many Lincoln fans would have been hoping an away trip to one of the Premier League’s top six, though some may fancy their chances against Sean Dyche’s Burnley.

Lincoln previously beat Championship teams Brighton and Ipswich Town in front of sell-out crowds at Sincil Bank on their way to the fifth round.

The Imps’ fifth round draw will be played between Friday, February 17 and Monday, February 20 and it’s the first time they have reached the last 16 since 1902.

Due to the FA Cup rules, Burnley must give Lincoln 15% of their stadium capacity, meaning at least 3,375 Imps will be making the trip to Lancashire.

A win for the Lincoln would see them just 90 minutes away from a trip to the new Wembley for the first time in the club’s history.

This will be City’s eighth game in the FA Cup this season, the most out of any team currently still in the competition.

Elsewhere, fellow National League side Sutton United will host Arsenal and Derby or Leicester will travel to Millwall.

The final decision on whether the game will be televised will be announced in the coming days followed by a club announcement on ticket information.

The full draw:

  • Burnley v Lincoln City
  • Fulham v Tottenham
  • Blackburn v Manchester United
  • Sutton United v Arsenal
  • Middlesbrough v Oxford United
  • Huddersfield v Man City
  • Wolves v Chelsea
  • Millwall v Derby or Leicester
