Big effort from Small: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Aldershot striker Wade Small scored twice in 10 minutes to send Burton crashing to their second home defeat in four days and give the Shots a 2-1 win.

After soaking up Burton pressure in the opening stages, it was the visitors who took control of a lively contest.

Only a full-length save by Adam Legzdins denied Aldershot the lead through Glen Little in the 15th minute.

But a minute later Small got the first of his goals when he pounced on a mistake by Burton full-back Scott Malone to shoot home from eight yards.

Small made it six for the season in the 26th minute when he fastened on to a Clayton Fortune header to steer home a 12-yard shot.

Burton pulled a goal back when top scorer Shaun Harrad lashed home a 20-yard shot on the stroke of half-time.

But despite frantic pressure, Burton were unable to claw their way back to level terms and only a trio of saves by Legzdins denied Marvin Morgan the chance to clinch a bigger win for the visitors.
