Burnley 1 Istanbul Basaksehir 0 (Agg 1-0)

The Clarets are only one more win away from the group stages of the Europa League after again saving the best until last to earn another extra-time win. 

 After knocking out Aberdeen inside an added half-hour at Turf Moor, Sean Dyche’s battlers did it again to send Istanbul Basaksehir the same way and advance to the play-off round and two-legged showdown with multiple former Greek champions Olympiakos.

 And once again it was Jack Cork who provided the catalyst for another landmark victory to extend the European tour in nerve-biting style.

 This time Cork came off the bench as Dyche juggled his resources ahead of Sunday’s home Premier League opener against Watford.

 And in the first half of extra-time he repeated his goal against the Dons with another top-class effort – this time with a crisp right-footed strike to kill of a Turkish side that in 210 minutes of football couldn’t find a way past Burnley’s rock solid defence.

 The Clarets had never drawn a European tie at Turf Moor before, winning six times and losing only once - a defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt ending their last run in European competition 51 years.

 And the only draw that would potentially take Burnley through this time from the third qualifying-round tie would be a repeat of the 0-0 scoreline in Turkey a week ago followed by the possibility of a penalty shoot-out.

I guess that the rest is all that matters when it comes to the Europa Cup in which case what a great night.

It really irks me that given the opportunity to get a ticket I would fly from Australia to get to the game. Meanwhile the entire visitors section lays empty devoid of supporters,

I hope that the club get a decent allocation for the Olympiakos gam in Athens although it is a bit late for me now. Looks like we need to get to the group games to allow me the opportunity to go to an away game.

Enough @#$%&. Great result with half of the first team. Well done all concerned.

I saw Cork's goal. What a Beauty.

In other news I had a great surf this morning. The water is still a touch icy though.
