Burton Albion striker Stuart Beavon scored his fifth goal of the season

Burton came from a goal behind to beat Chesterfield and extend their lead at the top of the League One table.

The home side made the perfect start through a Sam Hird header from Dan Gardner's corner to give them the lead at the break.

Burton hit back 30 seconds into the second-half when striker Stuart Beavon tapped in his fifth goal of the season.

Substitute Jerome Binnom-Williams fired low past Spireites keeper Tommy Lee in injury time to take all three points.

The Spireites looked to have earned a point with Breweres striker Beavon squandering a couple chances after his equaliser only for Binnom-Williams to send the away fans into raptures with his dramatic late winner.

The result comes as back to back defeats for Dean Saunders' side who drop down to 15th in League One.

Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told BBC Radio Derby:

"I thought we started sloppy. We spoke about it before the game that it was going to be one of those games that we had to start well. We didn't really do that well but then I must say after that 10 minute bad spell it was all about us.

"If you speak to the neutral supporter they would say Burton deserved to win today. And they played attractive football."
