JACK Cork wants Burnley to take care of their own business and not worry too much about the teams around them.

The Clarets have dropped to 17th in the table, just two points above the Premier League relegation zone, after defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.

Wins for relegation rivals Cardiff City, Southampton, Brighton and Newcastle on Saturday didn't help the Clarets' cause and Cork admitted he had one eye on the results 24 hours before the Anfield trip.

"Yeah, on a Saturday it’s the main thing on isn’t it - it’s the football," said Cork of checking the scores.

"Everyone saw the results, but it’s just one of them things. The team that goes down this season is the team that probably deserves it.

"We’ve just got to make sure that we’re not that team that doesn’t finish in a bad run of form and finishes well.

"It’s not going to be like that every week, you’ve just got to be realistic that those results are going to happen and you’ve got to make sure you’re above that line at the end."

And Cork believes the next four matches - at home to Leicester, Wolves and Cardiff and away at Bournemouth - offer a chance to pull clear of trouble.

"We’ve got to look at these games coming up for us and focus on trying to get wins there," he added.

"We’ve got four good games coming up."

The 4-2 reverse to Liverpool saw Burnley concede sloppy goals and Cork felt the Clarets' defensive deficiencies cost them a positive result.

"We could’ve made it a lot harder for them like in previous games," he said.

"We felt their goals didn’t really come from good play, they were mistakes from us in our own defence third that we don’t really do.

"We kept going until the end like we always do. We got the goal and pushed forward and we end up losing 4-2, that last goal was only because we over committed. Maybe we could have played a bit smarter. It’s disappointing.

"It would have been if we’d have held them a bit longer at 1-0 or 1-1, but things happen like that - it’s football.

"We did okay, this is one of the best teams in European football at the minute. We’re at their place and it’s a tough place to come, their record here is unbelievable. For us to score two goals, it’s a good marker."
