​James Tarkowski has called for Burnley to improve their away form after the Clarets came close to clinching a first success on the road against Sunderland in the FA Cup. 


The game ultimately finished 0-0, but Burnley came close to stealing the win when Tarkowski's header hit the post in the 75th-minute. 


The Clarets will be confident they can overcome the Black Cats at Turf Moor - where they have been impressive this season - but Tarkowski still wants his team-mates to carry that winning mentality on their travels. 

"We'd like to improve away from home, but especially at home, we've picked up some really good points against some good teams and halfway through, I don't think we can complain too much.


"The away form does need to improve a little bit, but performances have got better more recently without the results coming for us. But the results will come if the performances keep coming like that.


"But we'll look forward to the replay and getting a result then."

Sunderland boss David Moyes fielded a strong team for the tie, but yet his players could not find a way through the Clarets defence, which disappointed the Scot. 


"We're disappointed that we didn't get through, but we're still in the hat at the moment."


Sunderland next host Stoke on Saturday while Burnley entertain Southampton. Hopefully, when the two sides reconvene for the replay at Turf Moor, there will be a few more clips to put in the highlight reel after a thoroughly drab affair.
