Justin Richards buried his side's fourth from 12 yards, while Robbie Weir struck from outside the area and Zander Diamond nodded in a sixth.

A close-range Byron Harrison strike and Pim Balkestein's header made it 6-2.

Rowett delighted at Burton response

"I was absolutely delighted with the way we set about the game.

"We'd put to the players that losing on Saturday [3-0 against Rotherham] was great in a way because it gave us a reason to get up for the challenge.

"The challenge was could we kick on and produce a performance when we needed it?

"So there was a little bit of pressure on us, even though it was only the second league game of the season.

"I thought we desperately needed to win this game and we did it quite emphatically."
