Football News

Burton fought back from two goals down to claim a nail-biting 4-3 victory over a Hereford side who had won their previous three home games.

The Brewers opened the scoring when Shaun Harrad turned a cross from Greg Pearson beyond Adam Bartlett after just nine minutes.

Harrad then went close to doubling his tally with a blistering free-kick which Hereford goalkeeper Bartlett did well to keep out on the line.

And the Bulls levelled matters after 28 minutes when Matt Done played the ball onto Gavin McCallum, who inturn flicked it on for Marc Pugh to fire home with the aid of a deflection.

Bartlett was on hand to deny Cleveland Taylor before Hereford went in front themselves as Kenny Lunt fired home a 25-yard drive into the roof of the net.

James McQuilken increased the Bulls' advantage when he turned the ball into the net from close range after 59 minutes, although Burton produced an instant response through Taylor's long-range effort

Aaron Webster then headed home Taylor`s free-kick to level the scores after 66 minutes, before being dismissed himself for a second bookable offence in stoppage time.

Yet there was still room for Tony James to complete the remarkable turnaround in the 96th minute when he got his head to Keith Gilroy's cross.
