Match ends, Burton Albion 1, Leeds United 2.
In-form Leeds United earned a fourth consecutive victory as they came from behind to beat Burton Albion.
The Brewers took the lead against the run of play when defender Tom Naylor scored for the second successive game, tapping in a Lucas Akins cross.
Pablo Hernandez levelled with a beautifully measured free-kick before Kemar Roofe put Leeds in front with a fine finish three minutes later.
Defeat means Burton have now lost their past eight home matches.
Prior to Tuesday's win, Leeds had not managed to come from behind to claim all three points since a 3-2 success at Norwich in November 2016.
They started brightly but trailed when Naylor slid in to deflect Akins' low ball home at the back post.
However, they continued to dominate play thereafter and once they had turned the game around they never looked troubled at the back.
Leeds men travel to bottom side Birmingham on Saturday, while the Brewers host Norwich.
Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough:
"We had three or four good chances to go 2-0 up and didn't take them.
"And then there is a needless challenge on the edge of the box and we are punished by the free-kick. We tell them to stay on their feet and not give free-kicks away.
"Until we stop doing that we are going to keep losing games. Leeds are that good they will punish you. Until we can play error free it is going to be the same old story."
Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen:
"We are doing quite well at the moment. It is very satisfying. That was the idea, the wish, to do that (win four successive games) but it is not always given what we would like it to be.
"Today is a good example. In the first half we have played very well with more opportunities, had the possession clearly but at half-time we have gone in 1-0 down, but this is football.
"It (Pablo Hernandez's goal) was very well executed. But everyone did their bit in that one. It brought us into the game again and from that moment the confidence was there and grew in the team believing we could change the game."
