Burton Albion extended their lead at the top of the Blue Square Premier to 19 points after they came from behind to beat play-off hopefuls Wrexham.

The hosts fell behind when Wrexham's top-scorer Jefferson Louis hit the top corner from 18 yards.

Substitute striker Martin Butler directed Greg Pearson's cross into the net to level matters before Lee Morris struck from 20 yards for a late winner.

Morris was then sent off for serious foul play on Ashley Westwood.
