Last updated : 11 August 2015
Moore sends Clarets crashingByron Moore's late goal put underdogs Port Vale into the Capital One Cup second round with a deserved 1-0 victory over disappointing Burnley.Vale held their own in the hard-fought opening exchanges and home winger Enoch Andoh threatened with a 16th minute shot.But that was a rare moment of promise during a first half which Vale edged despite failing to test visiting goalkeeper Matt Gilks.Burnley were virtually non-existent as an attacking force in the first period and it took them almost an hour to pose a threat.George Boyd's cross from the right led to a fierce strike from Michael Kightly which was blocked by Vale substitute Ryan Inniss.And Kightly finally forced a save from Jak Alnwick when his 66th minute shot from 20 yards almost caught out the Vale keeper.The tie finally began to open up with neither side keen on extra-time and it was Vale who made the breakthrough in the 82nd minute.Vale substitute Sam Kelly, who replaced Andoh just two minutes earlier, whipped in a cross from the left which Gilks could only palm away.The ball dropped into the path of Moore and his left-foot shot from 12 yards crossed the line despite Burnley's efforts to clear.Burnley rallied late on and Boyd almost equalised when his stoppage time shot clipped the crossbar
