Lincoln City prepare for biggest FA Cup match in over 115 years

Sutton United Arsenal FA Cup fifth round schedule

The former Ipswich Town goalkeeper has conceded just once in those four games, to Stanley's Matty Pearson in the 120th minute, and he will look to build on that record when he returns to the team for Saturday's FA Cup fifth round clash with non-league Lincoln City.

Non-League Lincoln City will join Sutton United and attempt to become the first teams in the modern era to reach the quarter-finals (Spurs won the trophy as an amateur side in 1901) - but both face huge tests.

However, Burnley have lost at home to non-league opposition in the cup before, when they played Southern League Wimbledon in 1975, in a match which finished 1-0.

Howe has done similar things at Bournemouth, getting them promoted to the Premier League in 2015 and keeping them up last season.

"But we have to go there believing we can and will be that one game in one hundred".

Sean Dyche and his players can also take some of Brighton manager Chris Hughton's post match comments as words of warning, as he outlined the danger Lincoln pose, focusing on the physical side of their game in particular: "They are a big strong side with a lot of energy and they play very direct".

With Burnley's Premier League safety all but confirmed - they sit in 12th place, 10 points clear of relegation - we should expect Dyche to field a strong side here.

The 48-year-old is part of the Select Group of Referees - the highest in England - and made his Premier League officiating debut in Burnley's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in 2014.

"But there are certain English players and managers who could do just as good a job and I'm sure if they were given more opportunity, they would be able to show that".

"They are the blueprint for me", said the 38-year-old.

On Lincoln's FA Cup run thus far.

Sutton entertain Arsenal on Monday and will also have a great chance especially if the Gunners put out a full-strength side...

"People have written us off for the last three FA Cup ties so we've got nothing to fear, although we'll be mindful of their good players".

The Clarets have a real chance to do something in the FA Cup and a few punters might even be tempted to back them as outsiders to go on and win the competition at odds of [27.0]. You know what you're going to get from us and if they've not prepared properly, we'll probably get a result.
