BURNLEY DRAW IN PLAYOFF

Joe Hart marked his Burnley debut with a clean sheet – and a yellow card – as the Clarets held Istanbul Basaksehir to a goalless draw in the Europa League third qualifying round first leg.

The £3.5m signing from Manchester City produced a solid performance in Turkey.

Hart denied Brazilian defender Junior Caicara before tipping over ex-West Ham defender Manuel da Costa’s header.

Burnley, who host the second leg at Turf Moor next Thursday, did not manage a shot on target.

Indeed the Clarets had just two shots in total, their fewest since March 2012 against Ipswich in a Championship match.

Hart, one of the few Burnley players with Champions League experience, was booked midway through the second half for time wasting.
