Danny Drinkwater completed 90 minutes as Burnley reached the semi-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup with a 3-1 win over AFC Fylde.

All the Clarets goals came in a flurry either side of half-time, Joe McGlynn scoring twice with Swedish striker Joel Mumbongo getting his first for the club.

Nick Haughton pulled a late goal back for Fylde.

It was an important step for Chelsea loanee Drinkwater who is closing in on a first-team return after an ankle injury.

The 29-year-old’s only Burnley appearance has come in the EFL Cup exit against Sunderland in August, the former Leicester man’s loan set to expire in January.
