Burton Albion second in League Two with victory at Aldershot Town
Burton Albion are second in League Two - their highest-ever position - after a hard-earned 2-1 win away to Aldershot Town.
The Brewers, missing the injured Billy Kee and Jacques Maghoma, came from behind to win the game with a gritty performance at the EBB Stadium.
They fell behind in only the third minute, caught cold by Paul McCallum's run in behind the defence down the inside left channel for a neat finish across Stuart Tomlinson.
But Gary Rowett's team gradually got a grip on the game and equalised at an ideal time, a minute before half-time, when Aldershot failed to clear a cross from Alex MacDonald and Robbie Weir fired in a low shot from the edge of the box through a crowd of players.

The winner came after 65 minutes.
There seemed little danger when Michael Symes was patrolled by three defenders as he waited for a high ball to drop on the edge of the area.
But the on-loan striker won the ball and lifted a volley from 16 yards over keeper Glenn Morris into the top corner of the net.
Burton were the only team in the top seven to win on the night as they moved a crucial step closer to the possibility of automatic promotion.
