EAST Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers and Burnley meet at Ewood Park in the Carabao Cup second round tie on Wednesday.

Here’s all you need to go about the big game — including exactly how long there is to go until kick-off.

The match is a 7.45pm kick-off at Ewood Park on Wednesday, August 23, and will be the first time the two sides have met in the League Cup.

Should the game be level after 90 minutes it will head to extra time and then penalties to decide who reaches the third round.

Premier League side Burnley have won the last three East Lancashire derbies and have not tasted defeat since 2010, having previously gone 35 years without a victory in the fixture — a run of 11 games — between 1979 and 2014.

The Clarets won both matches in the 2015-16 Championship season 1-0 while ending their derby drought with a 2-1 win at Ewood in 2014 — meaning Sean Dyche’s side have won the last three derbies.

Dyche has never tasted defeat in his six derby matches with the other three games during his tenure ending 1-1.

Next week’s match will be Rovers boss Tony Mowbray’s first East Lancashire derby.

Rovers last won the tie in 2010 when they did the double in the Premier League season, winning 3-2 at Ewood Park and 1-0 at Turf Moor.

The last cup clash between the sides also went Rovers’ way as they prevailed 2-1 in an FA Cup fifth round replay in 2005 following a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor.
