Rovers and Burnley will be competing in the same division for the first time in six years following the Clarets’ relegation to the Championship.

Since the end of the 2021/22 campaign, the pair have new men in charge, Jon Dahl Tomasson taking over at Ewood Park, while the Turf Moor side turned to Vincent Kompany.

There has been one league cup tie since their last league meeting, the Clarets winning 2-0 at Ewood Park in August 2017, but the rivalry will resume again next season.

The sides will meet at Turf Moor on Saturday, November 12 before the return fixture at Ewood Park on Saturday, March 18.

Burnley have won the last three league meetings between the sides, with three consecutive 1-1 draws before that, with Rovers’ last victory coming in March 2010, the last Premier League fixture between the pair.

Other local games at Ewood for Rovers come against Preston North End (December 10), Blackpool (January 28) and Wigan Athletic (February 4).

The return games come against Blackpool (August 31), Wigan Athletic (September 10) and Preston North End (April 22).
