BUR­TON Al­bion looked ev­ery inch a side des­tined for pro­mo­tion from the first minute and so it proved.

The Brew­ers quickly gained a stran­gle­hold on the game by press­ing More­cambe at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity, forc­ing sev­eral mis­takes and it soon told.

Lau­rence Wil­son made an impatient at­tempt to re­gain pos­ses­sion and up­ended Stu­art Beavon in the box and even though Damien McCrory had his penalty saved, the Brew­ers’ press­ing game paid div­i­dends two min­utes later when they once again forced a turnover in pos­ses­sion al­low­ing Lu­cas Akins to score.

The ath­letic Akins was able to cap­i­talise from the penalty spot in the sec­ond half af­ter yet an­other More­cambe mis­take this time from An­dres Aresti­dou.

But the num­ber of er­rors made by the play­ers in red owed as much to the tenac­ity with which the play­ers in yel­low went about re­triev­ing pos­ses­sion, as their own de­fi­cien­cies.
