Burnley prevents embarrassment in FA Cup through penalties

Burnley has escaped a painful defeat to Milton Keynes Dons in the third round of the FA Cup, which plays in League One. The club in the Premier League only equalized deeply in extra time (1-1) and Burnley eventually qualified for the next round after penalties (4-3).
