John Coleman admits the EFL Cup second round draw against Burnley is ‘mouthwatering’ for the Stanley fans.
The Reds will face the Premier League Clarets at the Wham Stadium week commencing 22nd August.
It means Chris Eagles, Shay McCartan and Steven Hewitt could line up against their former side.
“It’s a good draw,” said Coleman. “All you can ask is a draw against a Premier League side at home and we have the locality obviously as well.
“For our fans it is a mouthwatering prospect. We have never had much luck in the cup draws, maybe the tide has turned, but it’s great for our fans and I just hope we give a good account of ourselves when we play them.”
