Jack Cork says Burnley's target is still to avoid relegation

BURNLEY, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 14:  Jack Cork of Burnley during the Premier League match between Burnley and West Ham United at Turf Moor

Jack Cork says avoiding relegation remains the main ambition for Burnley, despite the club sitting sixth in the Premier League table with almost half of the season completed.

A hard-fought goalless draw at Brighton on Saturday made it 32 points for the Clarets after 18 of 38 games.

They currently enjoy a 17-point cushion above the relegation zone, but the 28-year-old midfielder said: "Our aim, or main goal, is to get to 40 points as soon as possible.

"And if we do that then we can set some new targets and go from there.
