​Tarkowski: Burnley players eager to experience European competition

Burnley's players are feeling excited as they prepare to play Aberdeen in the club's first European match for 51 years, says defender James Tarkowski.

The Clarets finished seventh in the Premier League in 2017-18, taking them into the second qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday.

"We are only going to Scotland, so we are going to face a lot of British lads," said Tarkowski.

"But I still think the whole feel of it will be exciting for the fans and for ourselves."

"We want to go as far as we can," added 25-year-old.

"It would be daft to go and waste it in the first round of qualifying."
