EX­PRESS START KEY FOR BUR­TON

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

IT WAS billed as a bat­tle of two sides who will go all the way in the hunt for pro­mo­tion from League Two and this en­counter cer­tainly didn’t dis­ap­point in any way.

Bur­ton were the bet­ter side by some dis­tance in the first half, with full-back turned winger Chris Hussey do­ing the dam­age from the left.

But Gra­ham Alexan­der’s new-look side showed they are made of stern stuff and he will per­haps con­sider him­self a touch un­lucky not to have pulled off a re­mark­able come­back af­ter the Cod Army struck twice in the sec­ond pe­riod to en­sure this en­counter went right down to the wire.

Both man­agers were quick to brush off the im­por­tance of the re­sult af­ter the game, but ex­pect both sides to be right up there come the end of the sea­son.

Al­though sil­ver­ware is not handed out in Au­gust, a win at Fleet­wood will be a big morale-boost for Bur­ton.

COME­BACK: Jamille Matt of Fleet­wood makes it 3-2
