Burton registered their first win in seven games and kept only their second clean sheet of the season to halt their slide down the table.[LNB]Richard Walker grabbed the only goal in the third minute when his 10-yard shot took a deflection off Nathan Stanton after a cross from the right by Greg Pearson.[LNB]The home side found themselves under increasingly heavy pressure as Will Buckley shot into the side-netting in the 10th minute and also had an effort smothered by Burton keeper Artur Krysiak.[LNB]Burton had another scare when Chris O'Grady's shot was deflected narrowly wide before Simon Whaley headed too high in a goalmouth skirmish.[LNB]Burton had their chances too, with Pearson and Walker both going close, while Whaley wasted a couple of further opportunities for the visitors.[LNB][LNB]
