Hammers draw Clarets

West Ham United have been drawn at home to Championship side Burnley in the FA Cup Sponsored by EON fifth round.

The Hammers will face opposition from the second tier of English football at home for the third consecutive round, having defeated Barnsley and Nottingham Forest to reach the last-16.

West Ham last hosted the Clarets at the Boleyn Ground on 28 November 2009 in the Barclays Premier League, when the Hammers ran out 5-3 winners.

Burnley have reached the fifth round this season by defeating Port Vale and Burton Albion at Turf Moor.

The two clubs have met just twice before in the FA Cup. However, one of those meetings came at the sixth-round stage in 1963/64, when the Hammers went on to win the cup. Johnny Byrne scored twice and John Sissons once in a 3-1 home win for West Ham on 29 February 1964.

West Ham also won the other time the two sides met in this competition, 3-1 at Turf Moor on 27 January 1968. Martin Peters scored twice that day and Brian Dear once.

The Clarets have won the FA Cup once in their history, in 1914, and finished as runners-up in 1947 and 1962.

West Ham, of course, have lifted the trophy on three occasions, winning in 1964, 1975 and 1980 and finishing as runners-up in 1923 and 2006.
