FA Cup preview: Burnley v Fleetwood Town

1 March 2023

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town are set to face Championship leaders Burnley in the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup at Turf Moor on Wednesday night and we have all the information you need ahead of the tie.

Fixture: Burnley v Fleetwood Town

Competition: Emirates FA Cup

Date: Wednesday 1 March

Kick-off: 19:30

Venue: Turf Moor



Vincent Kompany’s Clarets have had quite a lot to shout about so far this season, with being 12 points clear atop the Championship table, playing some exciting football with a pretty much brand-new squad under Kompany and breezing their way through any opponent that face them. Burnley’s last game was a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town and are unbeaten in 14 games in all competitions.

Not many teams in the country are coming close to playing as well as Burnley so far this season, with each game passing by it has seemed a case of who can beat them. However, they came close to being knocked out of the FA Cup in the last round against Ipswich Town.

The Clarets travelled to Portman Road and came away with a 0-0 draw, needing a replay to beat League One’s third placed side. To get to Round Five where the Cods await Burnley, as well as Ipswich they defeated Premier League side Bournemouth in Round Three.



It isn’t just the Championship leaders having a rich vein of form having won four of the last five, being unbeaten in their last six in all competitions. Scott Brown’s sides good run continued at the weekend as Town got the better of Morecambe in a 1-0 win. Carlos Mendes Gomes was the scorer in that game as he bagged his sixth goal of the season for the Cods.

That man will also be the player Brown will look to on Wednesday night with fellow forwards Jack Marriott and Jayden Stockley both being cup tied after their recent moves from Peterborough and Charlton respectively.

Like Burnley, Fleetwood needed a replay against fellow League One side Sheffield Wednesday to reach this round but beat Queens Park Rangers, Oxford City and Ebbsfleet United prior to that.

Wednesday night will be the first time Fleetwood will play a Fifth Round FA Cup game, coming up against Burnley - who won this competition all the way back in 1913. For Town, it will be a huge occasion and made even better with the 1,700 supporters making the trip across Lancashire to Turf Moor.



Brown spoke to press ahead of Wednesday’s tie and labelled the game as ‘exceptional’ and said his team need to go and ‘enjoy the moment.’

“It’s an exceptional game to look forward to; first time in the fifth round against the Championship leaders that play unbelievable football possession-based football consistently.

“They always have high intensity and look to lock you in.

“It’s going to be a different challenge, but the lads have got to go out there and enjoy it because it’s phenomenal what they’ve done so far this season in this competition and beyond.

“For us, we’ve just got to go and enjoy the moment, and play as well as we can.

“Vincent has got them working so hard; the big thing for me is that they flow together, as you watch them. They lock teams in, start moves from the back.

“We went away to Ipswich and started poorly in the first 10 minutes of the game, but then we completed very well.

"For us to go and put up a draw against this team that held Burnley at their place and forced them into a close game at Turf Moor as well, we’ve got to take a lot from that.”

Report: A late goal from Burnley ends Town's historic FA Cup run

1 March 2023

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town stood stern for the majority of their Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round clash against Burnley on Wednesday evening, but it all ended in heartbreak after a 90th minute goal.

On a massive night for Fleetwood Town, Scott Brown’s side began the occasion on the defensive side with the hosts Burnley having some nice spells of possession on the ball early on. Anass Zaroury was becoming a threat early on, but he was guarded by the capable hands of Shaun Rooney.

The Town fans were in fine voice from the off and that was matched by the solid defence shown by Brown’s men in the opening ten minutes of the game. Burnley-born Harvey Macadam led the line alongside Cian Hayes, and both were chasing down the Burnley back line, making their presence known early.

Burnley’s Lyle Foster had a great opportunity in the 17th minute when the ball fell to him off the back of Harrison Holgate, but his effort didn’t trouble Jay Lynch in the Cods goal. The Clarets could have been two to the good twenty minutes but as well as the effort from Foster, a half chance from Josh Brownhill also went wide.

Former Cod Charlie Taylor got in on the action 23 minutes in, but his effort flashed wide of the target. Fleetwood were doing a good job of containing Vincent Kompany’s Clarets midway through the first half. Despite receiving a booking, Danny Andrew was rallying the troops at the back and was defending superbly.

Zaroury continued the Burnley onslaught of chances with a great effort, but Lynch saved well, and nothing came from the resulting corner. Fleetwood didn’t have too much of the ball in the first 45 minutes, but the team stayed compact and looked to give Burnley a game.

At the end of the half though, the referee sent Hayes off for a challenge on Josh Cullen which saw an alleged high foot from Fleetwood’s number 21.

Burnley began the second half controlling the ball and making Fleetwood work for possession. It was clear who the hosts turned to in chance creation. Zaroury had four attempts on goal by the 56th minute and Burnley have had over 70% possession throughout proceedings were looking for an opening, but Town stood firm and were giving a good account of themselves.

Some heroic defending was needed from Harrison Holgate with just over twenty minutes remaining, as the ball landed on the head of Taylor, whose header was cleared off the line superbly well by Holgate.

With the introduction of Carlos Mendes Gomes to the game, Town had that little bit of pace up front that was missing after Hayes’ red card.

The chances from the home side kept coming and Fleetwood continued to deny the Championship league leaders. After some more fantastic goalkeeping by Lynch, saving two efforts from range, the ball finds its way back into the box and falls to the feet of Connor Roberts who cleverly found the net.

A tough pill to swallow given the excellent defending Town showed all game, but the pressure from Burnley showed in the end.

Clarets XI: Peacock-Farrell (GK), Beyer (Roberts 61’), Al-Dakhil, Vitinho, Taylor, Cullen, Brownhill (C) (Gudmundsson 61’), Twine, Foster (Dervisoglu 81’), Obafemi (Tella 61’), Zaroury (Churlinov 73’).

Unused subs: Muric (GK), Barnes, Bastien, Sassi.

Cods XI: Lynch (GK), Vela (C), Holgate, Andrew (Wiredu 88’), Warrington, Robertson (Batty 65’), Macadam (Mendes Gomes 65’), Hayes, Nsiala, Earl, Rooney.

Unused subs: Cragg (GK), D. Johnson, Patterson, W. Johnson, McMillan, Lane.
