Burton at Highbury in FA Cup

10 November 2013

League 2 rivals on 7/8 December

Fleetwood Town will face League 2 rivals Burton Albion in the next round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.

Town overcame Conference North Gloucester whilst the Brewers overcam Conference National Hereford United whilst the draw was being made.

Manager Graham Alexander said 'I'm pleased with the home draw. It means that the fans avoid another long trip and it will attract more of them on the day.  We will be focusing on some important games before then but we know that it will be a match between two good teams.  We let ourselves down for about 25 minutes against Burton in the league at Highbury but were fantastic in the rest of the game so hopefully we can match the standard of our comeback.'

The tie will take place over the weekend of 7/8 December. Ticket information will be released in due course.
