Lincoln City will play Premier League side Burnley at Turf Moor in the fifth round of the FA Cup after reaching the last 16 of the competition for the first time in 115 years.

They beat Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 in the last round to set up this clash with Sean Dyche’s team.

Goals from Alan Power and Theo Robinson, as well as an own goal from England U-20 player Fikayo Tomori, was enough to give the Imps victory and make them one of only eight non-league sides to make it to this stage of the cup.

Speaking of the task at playing Burnley, manager Danny Cowley said: “I was speaking with one of my manager friends before the draw and he was saying that you don’t want Burnley.”

“We have to concentrate on the task in hand though and beat Solihull on Tuesday, it’s our most important game of the season.”
