Burton came from behind to beat Morecambe 3-2 and register their first win of the campaign thanks to a late Greg Pearson penalty.

Both teams opened their League Two scoring account for the season inside eight minutes.

Burton enjoyed a flying start when midfielder Aaron Webster made a perfectly-timed run to power home a 12-yard header from full-back Andy Corbett's cross.

But the visitors were quickly level as Andrew Fleming neatly tuned home a Darren Moss cross from eight yards.

The home side had a great chance to regain the lead in the 43rd minute, but Shaun Harrad was two denied by Barry Roche's double save and Andy Parrish's goalline clearance.

A bright start to the second half by Morecambe was rewarded with their second goal in the 51st minute.

Phil Jevons' shot came back off the inside of a post but Chris Shuker was on hand to set up Fleming for another close-range finish.

Craig Stanley went close to a third goal for the visitors, but Burton came back to level the scores in the 75th minute when Webster pounced from six yards after Morecambe failed to clear Lewis Young`s corner kick.

Pearson struck the winner from the spot in the 81st minute after being bundled over by Paul Scott.
