Instead, the Clarets will entertain League One Peterborough United in the competition at Turf Moor.

The ties will take place on the weekend of January 4th, 2020.

The two sides haven't played each other in nearly seven years when they shared a 2-2 draw in the Championship.

Posh were heading for three points when Tommy Rowe's double cancelled out Charlie Austin's early opener.

However, striker Martin Paterson equalised with just five minutes remaining.
