The former Celtic captain – no stranger to cup success having lifted 23 trophies during his time at Parkhead – is looking to cause a major upset and reach the quarter-finals having already taken the League One club further than it has ever gone before in the history of the competition.
Brown, who stepped into the dugout for the first time when he took charge of Fleetwood in the summer, masterminded a shock win over Championship opposition in the third round, knocking out Queens Park Rangers following a 2-1 victory at Highbury Stadium. His side also upset the odds by overcoming League One leaders Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round with a 1-0 home win in the replay after the initial tie had been drawn 1-1 at Hillsborough.
Fleetwood have been in excellent form of late – winning five of their last six matches to shoot towards the top half of the division – but they face a tall order against Vincent Kompany's Burnley side who are 12 points clear in the Championship and on course for an instant return to the Premier League following last year's relegation.
