​Burnley pays for fans to travel to match against rivals Blackburn

Burnley have promised to pay for the buses that are taking fans to Ewood Park to watch the Clarets take on Blackburn Rovers.

The Lancashire rivals have been drawn against each other in the second round of the League Cup, which is now called the Carabao Cup.

Burnley fans have been allocated 5,000 tickets for the first meeting between the sides since March 2016.

A club statement read: "Coach travel to this fixture is compulsory for all visiting fans. Burnley Football Club will pay for the coaching of all supporters to the game, either from Turf Moor or via Supporters' Clubs.

"Burnley Football Club respectfully asks all supporters to conduct themselves responsibly. Stewards and Police will be available at coach departure points and within the stadium for assistance and for any queries."
