Vokes rescues draw for Burnley against Aberdeen

Sam Vokes scored late to rescue a 1-1 draw for Burnley in their Europa League second-round qualifying clash with Aberdeen on Thursday.

The Englishman fired after 80 minutes to cancel out Gary Mackay Steven's early penalty.

James Tarkowski fouled Sam Cosgrove after 19 minutes to hand the hosts an opportunity to take the lead. And Former Celtic midfielder Mackay-Steven made no mistake from 12 yards out.

A frustrating night for the Clarets was made worse when Nick Pope limped off with an injury on the 51st minute mark.

But Vokes was on hand to give Burnley a valuable away goal heading into the second leg down to be played at Turf Moor on Thursday.
