Wednesday boss Brian Laws is desperate to avoid a repeat of last season's dreadful start to the season and get off the mark with a win on the opening day of the 2008-09 campaign.
Despite a fantastic finish to the 2006-07 season, Wednesday were left rooted in the relegation zone following a disastrous start to the season, which started with a 4-1 reverse at Ipswich Town on the opening day of the season.
But the Owls have been drawn at home for the big kick-off this time around, after the Championship fixtures were released on Monday, and Laws can't wait to get started again.
'I am pretty excited to see the fixture list and first and foremost I am delighted that we are starting at home,' Laws told the official SWFC website.
'After the poor start last year we know we have to make a good start this year and we know what is to be expected.
'The early games are certainly winnable and they are games we believe can kick start our season.'
Wednesday have been relatively slow starters in recent seasons, and Burnley are often seen as a side that start with all guns blazing before steadily fading out as the season progresses.
And the contest with the Clarets is certainly going to be an interesting one, with the bookmakers backing neither to do much in the Championship this season.
Laws continued: 'Every team will start the season with ambitions to be at the top of the table and we will be aiming just as much as they are to get off to a flying start and if we can get that same support as we did at the end of last season at home then there is every reason we can get the right result.'
