Burton 0-2 Oxford

9 September 2013

What should have been the game of the day in Skybet League 2 was ruined as a spectacle following some controversial decisions in the first half left the Brewers with a mountain to climb against fellow promotion contenders Oxford United. 

When Ian Sharps and Dave Kitson tangled midway inside the Burton half just after the half hour mark referee Michael Bull decided to red card the Albion defender for a little kick out at the striker but when Kitson raised his hands to shove Sharps to the ground he was controversially only shown a yellow and thus the tone was set for the remainder of the game. 

Oxford eventually settled the game with two second half goals through Alfie Potter and Danny Rose but the first half events left a sour taste in the mouth.
