Brewers battle to Argyle victory

Burton Albion came back from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 win at struggling Plymouth Argyle thanks to Robbie Weir's opportunistic 79th minute winner.

The striker reacted quickest to a poor Jake Cole clearance to complete a five-minute turnaround for the visitors.

Burton had on-loan Hull keeper Mark Oxley to thank for keeping them in the game at half time following a brilliant one handed save to deny Curtis Nelson, who looked certain to score with a downward header from Jamie Lowry's free kick from wide right.

Plymouth's Paris-Cowan Hall opened the scoring just after half-time when he completed a superb downfield move to grab a 49th- minute goal.

Cowan-Hall - on as a first half replacement for Alex MacDonald - converted from 12 yards after being put in on goal by Warren Feeney's superb pass on the spin.

Albion turned the match around in five minutes as central defender Nathan Stanton headed home a 74th-minute leveller as Plymouth failed to clear their lines from a corner.

Keeper Cole flapped at visiting skipper Zander Diamond's header and Stanton swooped to restore parity.

Albion grabbed a winner against the run of play when Cole punched out Chris Palmer's cross and Weir headed home.
