Brewers too strong for Shots: Match Review

First-half goals from Tom Parkes and Steve Kabba breathed new life into Burton's play-off push as they recorded a 2-0 victory over Aldershot.

Teenager Parkes headed home after only eight minutes and journeyman striker Kabba stabbed in a second 18 minutes later to see off the Shots.

Burton flew out of the traps and their early pressure was rewarded when on-loan Leicester centre-back Parkes headed in Cleveland Taylor's superb cross.

The Shots should have levelled six minutes later when Danny Hylton was sent clear through on goal but Polish goalkeeper Artur Krysiak made a superb stop.

Burton made the most of that let off and soon doubled their lead. John McGrath's corner caused chaos in the box and Kabba forced the ball home from close range for his fourth goal of the season.

Shots boss Kevin Dillon rung the changes at the break with Damian Spencer and Marlon Jackson coming on but Burton were still the better side.

On the hour Kabba played in Taylor but he fired into the side netting and Jacques Maghoma also fired a free-kick over, but the damage had already been done.
