Burton remain in League Two's automatic promotion places as they equalled a club record of eight successive home wins with victory over Morecambe.

Jacques Maghoma put Burton ahead when he pounced to stab home a loose ball before Billy Kee popped up with a close-range header for 2-0.

Kee doubled his tally after the break by lashing in a 12-yard volley.

Jack Redshaw pulled a goal back from the penalty spot while Chris Holroyd rifled home in injury time for 3-2.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

"That made me nervous. Blimey, I just looked in the mirror and saw a few grey hairs.

"Up until 80 minutes it was probably about the most comfortable we've been, to be three-nil up.

"The issue then is that one or two tried to overplay and overdo things. We got caught a couple of times in the middle of the park and we got caught wide once or twice."

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"We finished the game strongly once we got some fresh legs on. But I'm disappointed with the way we conceded the goals. Burton haven't had to work hard to get them.

"When you're up there and it's going well, these things happen for you. When you strike it and it hits the wall, it's dropping perfectly to their forward in the middle of our goal.

"The lads who came on affected the game. We got our second goal and had a couple of chances, so on another day we might have got a point.

"We had too much of a mountain to climb but there are plenty of positives to take. We gave a good side a good game, but we've lost so it means nothing and I'm disappointed."
