Jack Cork’s goal was his second of the season after he scored against Aberdeen in the previous round

Burnley moved one round away from the group stage of the Europa League by beating Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir after extra time.

After a goalless first leg, Jack Cork scored the only goal at Turf Moor when he curled into the top corner.

Ashley Barnes earlier shot wide and Phil Bardsley’s strike was saved by goalkeeper Mert Gunok.

Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart made fine saves to deny Edin Visca and Kerim Frei at the end of the first half.

The Clarets, in their first season of European football since 1966-67, will play Greek side Olympiakos in a two-legged play-off, with the winners qualifying for the group stage.

Chelsea and Arsenal will join the competition in the group phase.
