Burnley goalkeeper Will Norris delighted with FA Cup shootout win on debut

Burnley goalkeeper Will Norris was delighted to make a winning debut for their FA Cup shootout defeat of MK Dons.

Norris enjoyed a winning Burnley debut as the Clarets came from behind to knock-out League One outfit MK Dons in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

“We didn't really need the extra-time but it was good to get through," said Norris, who was called into action after an ankle injury to Nick Pope forced the England keeper to take a place on Burnley's bench.

“It was good (to play). I would have been happier with a clean sheet but I did my bit when called upon.

“It's a win-win situation for the goallies. I thought their keeper had a blinding game.

“It possibly shouldn't have gone to penalties, but I was just happy to do my job when called upon."
