Burton Albion 2-0 York City

John Mousinho
John Mousinho scored his second goal for Burton Albion

Burton Albion stayed top of League Two and ended York City's 23-game unbeaten run with their sixth win of the season.

Burton came close when Michael Ingham punched to John Mousinho but his effort was headed off the line by Keith Lowe.

The Brewers did take the lead through Lucas Akins' volley after Adam McGurk's shot had been blocked by Lowe.

McGurk hit the bar before Mousinho powered in a low effort from 25 yards to give manager Gary Rowett a win after turning down Blackpool in midweek.

The victory leaves Burton with the only unbeaten record in League Two and a three point cushion at the top of table.

Burton manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

Rowett on Burton Albion v York

"It was a difficult game and I knew it would be. I'd been slightly concerned with one or two things this week that might have just taken their eye off the ball.

"You're talking about a team that hadn't lost for about 23 games in the regular league season, so to do what we did against them shows how potent we can be when we play well and when we do the right things.

"I thought there were lots of excellent performances again."
