JACK Cork has urged Burnley to play the game and not the occasion when they take on Spurs at Wembley on Sunday.

The national stadium is being used as Tottenham’s temporary home while a new stand is built at White Hart Lane.

Cork is no stranger to Wembley, having played there for the Great Britain football team at the London 2012 Olympics.

It is also familiar territory for England international goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

But for some it will be their first experience of a stadium more familiarly used as a cup final venue, and Cork is hoping the Clarets do not get carried away.

“Tottenham at Wembley, everyone’s going to be up for that,” the midfielder said.

“It’s going to be weird, especially with it not being a cup final, which is usually what it is.

“You usually look forward to playing cup finals there.

“But it’s just another league game. Hopefully we can adjust to that and not be in awe of going to Wembley and play there like it’s a normal game.”

Spurs lost their opening game there, against a Chelsea side who Burnley beat 3-2 on the first day of the season.

It stretched a bleak record for the London club at Wembley, as they have now won only once there in 10 matches since a League Cup final win over Chelsea nine years ago.

“They’ve had a bit of tough form there recently and hopefully we can add to that,” said Cork.

“It’s never easy when you’ve had a bit of bad form, it’s hard to get out of it, and hopefully we can exploit that.”

Of Burnley’s unexpected opening day triumph at title holders Chelsea, Cork added: “Hopefully we can keep that going. We managed to do it with a great first half at Chelsea and three goals and anything similar to that will be amazing.

“Hopefully it gives us a little bit of a boost because it’s not every day you get to play at Wembley.

“It’s special and it will be massive.

“Hopefully we can take a few fans there and have a good day for everyone.”
