Brewers leave Macc with late headache

Burton scored twice in the final four minutes to grab a precious 3-2 victory over Macclesfield in their battle to avoid relegationDespite missing six regulars through injury and suspension, Paul Peschisolido's side twice came from behind before Sam Winnall fired home an 89th-minute winner from the penalty spot - leaving Town stunned after they had taken a 2-1 lead in only the 81st minute.Macclesfield made a blistering start, opening the scoring inside 22 seconds as Emile Sinclair pounced on Tyrone Barnett`s pass to score from close range.As Burton battled for the equaliser Winnall shook the crossbar with a free-kick in the 26th minute. But Calvin Zola did put the home side back on level terms three minutes before the break when he pounced on a rebound to drill home a right-footed shot from the edge of the area.However, the visitors looked to have secured the points when they regained the lead nine minutes from time, Barnett's cross tailor-made for the unmarked Sinclair to head home from six yards.But the hosts hit back to level for the second time when Adam Bolder headed home a Jack Dyer free-kick five minutes later. Winnall then stepped up to score from the spot after Jacques Maghoma had been tripped by Izak Reid.
