Nuneaton 1-2 Burton Albion

A first-half red card for defender Samuel Ricketts cost Nuneaton dear as goals by Darren Stride and Matthew O'Halloran gave Burton Albion an away win.

Ricketts was shown a straight red card after just 25 minutes for a dangerous foul on Albion midfielder John Burns.

And within 13 minutes, the visitors had made their one-man advantage tell as Stride volleyed home Aaron Webster's cross.

Three minutes after half-time the visitors doubled their lead as Stride turned provider for Matthew O'Halloran to find the corner of the net with Albion's second volleyed goal of the game.

Although Nuneaton rallied with a 71st-minute Mark Quayle drive into the bottom corner of the net there was no way back for the 10 men.


Nuneaton: MacKenzie, Thackeray, Love, Cooper, Angus, Barry Williams, Lavery, Ducros, Ricketts, McGregor, Quayle. Subs: Hodgson, Olanipekun, Daniel Williams, Lenton, Turner.

Burton Albion: Duke, Henshaw, Webster, Kirkwood, Reddington, Dudley, Glasser, Stride, Burns, Anderson, O'Halloran. Subs: Wassall, Moore, Robinson, Clough, Sinton.

Referee: A Marriner (Birmingham).
