Burton Albion came from behind to condemn York City to their first away League Two defeat of the season.

York took an early lead through Patrick McLaughlin's close-range shot but were pegged back by Lee Bell's strike which deflected in off Clarke Carlisle.

Albion went ahead on 65 minutes when Calvin Zola bundled home after Robbie Weir's shot was pushed out by York keeper Michael Ingham.

Matt Paterson made certain for Burton late on with a clever lob over Ingham.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

"I had an uneasy feeling about tonight. Whether that's just my nature - when things are going well, something must be about to go wrong, I don't know.

"I take the blame for the first half. I said to the players because of the way York play tactically if we could just sit in there in the first half and be patient, it would give us opportunities. But we couldn't get out and couldn't get our game going.

"At half-time we challenged them and said, 'can you move up the pitch 20 yards, can you go and win things in their half? Let's take the reins off now and have a real go at them'."

York City manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio York:

"I thought we started the game brilliantly and for 25 minutes, until they scored, we were excellent.

"It was probably even until half time but I thought we dropped a little bit in the second half.

"It's disappointing, but it's happened and we'll get over it and get ready for Saturday."
