SEASON REVIEW: OCTOBER

8 June 2015

OCTOBER

The season didn’t slow down for League 2 leaders Burton Albion in October. Another six games stood in October, including the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Cambridge United ended the 100% home record of League Two leaders Burton Albion, who failed to extend their one-point lead at the top.

Tom Elliott headed the visitors in front from Harrison Dunk's cross.

Another Dunk centre provided the second for Ryan Donaldson midway through the second half, before Elliott met Kwesi Appiah's pass to make the game safe.

Lucas Akins steered in a shot from 15 yards but it was no more than a consolation for the hosts.



The Brewers have never enjoyed the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and it wasn’t about to change.

Goals from Forrester, Tyson and Wellens secured a place in the third round for Doncaster Rovers, a team that dominated when visiting the Pirelli Stadium.



Alex McDonald's stunning late free-kick earned Burton Albion a dramatic win at fellow promotion-hopefuls Northampton.

The hosts should have gone ahead when Kaid Mohamed somehow blazed the ball over the bar from six yards when it seemed impossible to miss.

Burton took advantage to lead at half-time through Jacob Blyth's low strike.

Ryan Cresswell fired the Cobblers level when the Brewers failed to clear but McDonald's shot earned the visitors a second win in five league games.



Morecambe scored twice in two second-half minutes to earn an impressive win at promotion rivals Burton.

Kevin Ellison lashed in his sixth of the season from eight yards to put the visitors ahead just before the hour.

Then Alex Kenyon doubled the lead from close range after Ellison's header was saved by Jon McLaughlin.



Burton Albion edged out Carlisle in a seven-goal thriller at Brunton Park.

Damien McCrory opened the scoring with a stunning strike from 30 yards, but Carlisle levelled when Kyle Dempsey found the net with a backheel.

Lee Bell restored Burton's lead from 25 yards and Jacob Blyth and Alex MacDonald extended the advantage before Brad Potts pulled one back.

Derek Asamoah scored on his Carlisle debut to make it 4-3 but Burton held on despite Stuart Beavon's late red card.



Ian Sharps' late own goal saw Stevenage earn a narrow victory against high-flying Burton Albion.

Stevenage substitute Tom Pett came closest to breaking the deadlock before half-time when his attempted cross bounced back off the crossbar.

Lucas Akins and Phil Edwards went close for Burton as they pressed for a goal.

However, Charlie Adams's 84th-minute effort took a wicked deflection off Brewers captain Sharps, leaving keeper Jon McLaughlin with no chance.
