Newly-promoted Burton marked their first home match in the Football League with an emphatic five-goal victory.Close-range goals from Greg Pearson and Russell Penn put Burton ahead early on but on-loan Ian Craney combined with Jimmy Phillips to pull one back. Shaun Harrad's low shot made it 3-1 before the break and Pearson extended the lead from the spot at the restart. Phil Jevons grabbed a goal to give Morecambe hope but John McGrath scored from outside the box to make it five. Burton Albion boss Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "I'm absolutely delighted with the way we performed. I'm caught for words which is not like me. "The two front men were outstanding, the workrate and closing down, the midfield four. Going forward we looked a threat all the time "I'm pleased we managed to get our first win and we did it in style."
