Oxford United 2-2 Burton Albion

Burton striker Justin Richards scored twice against former club Oxford United as the Brewers came from 2-0 down to rescue a point.

Alfie Potter scored Oxford's opener from Michael Duberry's knock-down and Peter Leven doubled their lead by dinking the ball over Ross Atkins.

Richards pulled one back from a penalty after Liam Davis fouled Jacques Maghoma and levelled from close range.

He could have won it but fired over and was then denied by Ryan Clarke.


Burton Albion boss Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:

"In the first half, they were the best team we've seen. They passed the ball well, they were fluid in their play, they created numerous chances and sometimes you need to have a little bit of luck.

"I thought we tweaked things in the second half and it worked to our benefit and I thought once we scored, we looked more likely to score another, which we did.

"I'm pleased with the result though, because there's not many teams that are going to come here and win, that's for sure."
