Salford City vs Burnley match preview

Having already made history in this season’s Carabao Cup, can Salford City now claim a Premier League scalp?

So far, the Ammies have enjoyed two penalty shootout victories in this competition, overcoming both Preston North End at Deepdale and then Leeds at home, thereby getting this far for the very first time.

In contrast to that though, Neil Wood’s team are in horrendous form in League Two, with Saturday’s 3-2 reverse at Harrogate their fifth defeat on the spin.

This leaves Salford 21st in the fourth-tier, just one point clear of the relegation zone.

Thus, Burnley will make the short 21 mile journey south confident of victory.

Although, Vincent Kompany’s team are struggling themsleves in the Premier League, as Saturday night’s 1-0 defeat against Manchester United leaves them in the bottom three, with just a solitary point to their name.

Burnley haven’t gone beyond round four of this competition since 2009, but victory at Moor Lane would leave them one victory away from changing that fact.
