Burton Albion 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink
Hasselbaink has only lost once in 14 games since taking over Burton manager in November

Burton Albion were knocked off the top of League Two by Shrewsbury Town after failing to beat 10-man AFC Wimbledon.

The Brewers had the better chances, even before the Dons had Mark Phillips sent off for an altercation with Stuart Beavon with 25 minutes left.

Beavon and Lucas Akins both went close before the break and Beavon missed a great chance after Phillips saw red.

The closest the visitors came was when Albion's Tom Naylor had to clear off his own line.

Before the interval, Brewers keeper Jon McLaughlin made a fine low stop from Alfie Potter, while Phillips and Adebayo Akinfenwa were both off target.

Burton have dropped home points for the first time in seven games under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

But the hosts, who have only lost once in 14 games since Hasselbaink took over in November, were the more likely scorers, although they were far from convincing.

Beavon and Lucas Akins forced decent saves from James Shea, while Adam McGurk and Ivan Calero had good opportunities.

But Beavon wasted the best opening when he fired over the bar in the closing stages, meaning the Brewers drop to second on goal difference following Shrewsbury's dramatic fightback victory over Carlisle United.
