QPR must rewrite the history books after being paired with Championship rivals Burnley in the draw for the third round of the FA Cup.

Rangers have only faced the Lancashire side twice previously in the FA Cup, losing 4-2 at Turf Moor in 1921 and suffering a 6-1 hammering there 41 years later in the third round.

And, as Rs fans will not need reminding, their side have failed to triumph in ANY FA Cup tie since edging past Luton in a third round replay eight years ago.

Burnley, who are currently fourth in the Championship, have won on their last two visits to Shepherd's Bush - the most recent of them a 2-1 success just three weeks ago.

The Clarets are also in the semi-finals of the Carling Cup, having added Arsenal to their list of scalps with a 2-0 win at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

The third round tie will take place at Loftus Road on Saturday January 3.
