Sheffield United: Blades warned that Burnley ‘are still a band of brothers’

Sheffield United have been warned that Burnley remain as together as ever ahead of Saturday’s visit to Bramall Lane, despite an error-strewn display against Chelsea last weekend.

Jack Cork, the son of former United striker Alan and a mainstay of Sean Dyche’s midfield, has admitted individual mistakes helped the Londoners establish a 4-0 lead at Turf Moor before two late efforts brought a semblance of respectability to the scoreline.

Cork admitted Burnley had given Frank Lampard’s side a helping hand – defensive lapses gifted Christian Pulisic two of his three goals.

But Cork insisted there will be no recriminations behind the scenes as Dyche’s men prepare for their meeting with United.

“Mistakes happen and you’ve got to hold your hands up and learn from them,. No-one will say anything to the boys who made the mistakes because it can happen to anybody at any time,” said Cork.
