Burnley eased into the second round of the League Cup with a comfortable victory at League Two Port Vale.

Chris Shuker's free-kick deceived the Burnley defence to put Vale ahead, but the visitors levelled two minutes later from Chris McCann's bullet header.

Charlie Austin benefited from Joe Davis's weak back pass for Burnley's second and Dean Marney breezed unchallenged into the box for a third.

Shuker had Vale's best chance after the break but fired wide.

Vale had other chances in the second half as Louis Dodds saw his long-range shot saved by the fingertips of Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant, while Sam Morsy went close in injury time.
