Burton Albion   1 - 2   Darlington

Burton Albion 1-2 Darlington

Burton Albion 1-2 Darlington

New boss Simon Davey made a good start as Darlington secured victory at Burton to retain their slim survival hopes.

Burton's Greg Pearson hit the post inside two minutes, but Darlington took the lead thanks to a superb left-foot shot from Josh Gray after 22 minutes.

Alan White headed the second from Gary Smith's corner 10 minutes later.

The visitors were good value for their lead and could count themselves unlucky when Pearson reduced the deficit from the penalty spot.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:

"I think we got what we deserved which was nothing. We just didn't perform well.

"We were flat, our passing was poor, we didn't keep possession, we didn't have that intensity, we didn't have that tempo, it was just an all round poor game."
