A goal either side of half-time helped the young Brewers to secure a vital victory against Notts County in the EFL Youth Alliance League.
Tom Hewlett finished a well worked move midway through the first-half before an own goal after good work from Ben Hart ensured all three points.
A late consolation from Notts County couldn’t stop Burton, who claimed a much needed victory.
The young Brewers then came close again this time through forward Hewlett. His effort, just wide after some great football down the left.
Notts County then had a spell of pressure - although nothing came off it. The left-back looking lively.
Burton finally broke the deadlock in the half hour mark. Tom Armitage and Hewlett fantastically linked up once more down the left, the former played a great ball across goal and the nippy striker tucked home.
It should have been two before half-time however, Hewlett with some brilliant running down the channel, squared brilliantly for Carter. He made space in the box before smashing the crossbar.
The second-half started in the same vein. Ethan Vale’s quick free-kick expertly found Ben Hart down the right, his first-touch allowed him to square the ball in the six-yard box where Hewlett’s pressure could only force the County defender to slide the ball into his own net.
The young Brewers almost made it three midway through the second-half. Hewlett again with some excellent work up top, finding Vale who’s effort from the edge of the box cannoned back off the post.
Notts County pulled a goal back late on but it wasn’t enough to stop the Brewers taking all three points.
Burton are next in action on Wednesday when they take on Grimsby, at Alfreton.
