PEAR­SON KO’S CLARETS

Daily Mirror - - ENGLAND V PAKISTAN -

Ac­cring­ton 1 Burn­ley 0 (af­ter ex­tra time, 0-0 at 90mins)

MATT PEAR­SON scram­bled a last-minute goal to knock out Premier League Burn­ley.

League Two Ac­cring­ton knocked out Mid­dles­brough in 2013 – the last time the Clarets won a game in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Stan­ley also beat 2013 fi­nal­ists Brad­ford on penal­ties in the first round and looked like set­ting up an­other shoot-out this time.

Burn­ley boss Sean Dy­che made 10 changes to the side that beat Liver­pool last Satur­day and both sides had late chances to win it in nor­mal time.

Ac­cring­ton sub­sti­tute Paddy Lacey, a for­mer car­pet fit­ter, missed his mo­ment of glory when he side-footed wide.

And Burn­ley sub­sti­tute An­dre Gray (right) was de­nied by keeper El­liot Par­rish to set up ex­tra-time.

But Pear­son had the last word at the death.
