NIGEL Clough is looking forward to another crack at Premier League opposition after the Brewers were drawn at home to Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup Third Round.

Albion have only ever beaten teams from the top flight twice in the club's history and both came in this competition - QPR and last season Burnley.

Clough said: "We have a Premier League side at home so we have to be happy with the draw.

"Our fans get to see another top flight team coming to the Pirelli Stadium and it's very similar to Burnley last year and we will be trying our best to get the same result.

"We know Premier League teams have other priorities but Bournemouth have built up a good squad. Forest Green nearly got them tonight and only lost on penalties but we won't be fooled too much by that as they have a very, very strong squad.

"They are very capable when they put their best team out of competing with the top teams so we have to be wary of that. They will also know that they have to get through these early rounds in order to do that.

"The biggest factor for us is being at home and it would be nice to make it a hat-trick of victories over Premier League teams."
