Burton Albion 2-1 Bristol Rovers: Match Report


Kee unlocks Albion win

Billy Kee`s fourth goal in his last six outings saw Burton come from behind to beat Bristol Rovers 2-1 at the Pirelli Stadium.

Looking to build on their five-goal defeat of Rotherham, Rovers dominated the opening stages and took the lead in the 14th minute when Matt Harrold towered above the Burton defence to power home a header from Craig Stanley's free-kick.

Scott McGleish wasted a gilt-edged chance to put the visitors further ahead before Burton hit back to level the scores in the 27th minute through winger Cleveland Taylor, who pounced on a loose ball to drill in a low shot from the edge of the area.

And the Brewers went in front eight minutes later as Kee swept home Kevin Amankwaah's cross from eight yards out.

After the break, Harrold had a header comfortably saved by Ross Atkins and it was Burton who had the better chances.

Calvin Zola went close with a header, substitute Jacques Maghoma drove a low shot narrowly wide and Kee fired over from the edge of the box.

Scott Rendell had a fierce shot blocked in a goalmouth scramble as Rovers battled in vain for a point.
