Jack Cork Helps Burnley Progress In The Europa League


Jack Cork scored in the 97th minute of extra-time against Turkey’s Basaksehir as Burnley set up a meeting with Greek side Olympiakos in the play-off round with a 1-0 aggregate win.

The Clarets were held to a goalless draw by their Turkish opponents, replicating last week’s away leg stalemate, but substitute Cork rifled a 97th-minute winner at Turf Moor as a 1-0 win kept the club’s continental adventure going.

The once-capped England midfielder netted at a similar stage in the previous round to break the deadlock against Aberdeen and he will get the chance to extend his unlikely scoring streak next week.

Joe Hart had a night to remember on his home debut, making a series of strong saves in an extended duel with Edin Visca, and has yet to concede after three outings for his new club.
