NIGEL Clough was happy with a home draw in the Third Round of the Carabao Cup after the Brewers were paired with Burnley in tonight's draw.

The Albion manager said: "A Premier League team at home - that's a good draw for us.

"Maybe with a League One side playing a Premier League side at home we might be on TV as well.

"We know all about the strength of their squad and if they get knocked out of Europe it might be a different priority for them.

"I know Sean Dyche from Nottingham Forest a long time ago and his staff. We have great admiration for what they have achieved. I was only speaking to him a couple of days ago and I'm sure I will talk to him again about the tie later this week.

"They are a team with very good players and it's an attractve tie and we will do our best to win it.

"Everyone who saw us play Aston Villa will have enjoyed the performance, especially the second half, so hopefully it will be a similar night in a few weeks' time."

The tie will be played week commencing September 24.

Date and ticket details will be confirmed in the next few days.
