Burnley’s Premier League promotion push is looking increasingly like a procession the longer the weeks tick by, with The Clarets currently leading the Championship charge with a seemingly insurmountable 19-point cushion ahead of third-placed Middlesbrough. But, in midweek, their top-flight aspirations become an afterthought as they welcome Fleetwood Town to Turf Moor in the FA Cup fifth round.

Vincent Kompany’s men have already put in a lot of hard work to reach this stage of the competition, eliminating Premier League side Bournemouth in the third round, before requiring a replay to brush aside Ipswich Town. Their rewards for those two scalp claims is a tie against another League One opponent. With Pep Guardiola and Man City already through to the quarter-finals, Kompany will be relishing the chance to match them.

Former Celtic hatchet man Scott Brown currently has the reins at the Highbury Stadium, as The Fishermen make the short journey to fellow Lancashire side Burnley. His men are hovering rather precariously in mid-table in League One, so the FA Cup represents a big chance to really make something of this season. They have already bypassed Oxford City, Ebbsfleet United, Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday.

Burnley vs Fleetwood match stats

A relative unknown on these shores following his summer move from Belgium, Anass Zaroury could be playing in the Premier League next season with Burnley. The 22-year-old Morocco international has acclimatised swimmingly to the English game after signing from Charleroi, with the fleet-footed winger already bagging twice in the FA Cup — making him Burnley’s top scorer in the competition — while he also scored twice in his one EFL Cup appearance, and has a further six in the Championship.

For Fleetwood, Carlos Mendes Gomes bagged the only goal of the fourth round replay against Sheffield Wednesday to send Fleetwood through, and the Senegal-born winger has certainly had an interesting career to date. Currently on loan from Luton, the 24-year-old was once on the books of Atletico Madrid and Getafe before moving to semi-professional club West Didsbury & Chorlton (based in Manchester) in 2016. Since then he has risen to play for Morecambe, Luton and now Fleetwood, where he has nine goals in all competitions this term.
