Burton stretched their unbeaten run to seven games as they drew at Hartlepool.

The Brewers took the lead as Chris Hussey fed Phil Edwards who turned to volley under goalkeeper Scott Flinders.

Burton should have doubled their advantage but Matty Palmer fired wide before Edwards cleared Andy Monkhouse's effort off the line before the break.

Pools equalised as substitute Brad Walker curled in a first-time shot from 18 yards and Luke James almost won it for the hosts but his shot flew wide.

Post-match: Burton boss Rowett

Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:

"It was always going to be a difficult trip. The conditions weren't easy, but I have to say, for 60 minutes, that's probably as many chances as we've ever created. I do feel as though the game should have been completely put to bed.

"We had lots of breaks, lots of quality and it was just that last little bit where we couldn't quite manage to put the icing on the cake. Had we had gone two or three up, which I think we were worthy of, the game would have been over.

"I turned to Kevin Summerfield [assistant boss] after about fifty five minutes and said 'we ain't gonna win this'. You could just sense it. We didn't take our chances and I think when you play that well away from home for the first hour, you've got to score goals."
