Debutant substitute keeper Harry Campbell saved a last-minute penalty as Burton beat Championship side Aston Villa to reach the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Liam Boyce's shot deflected in off Tommy Elphick to put the League One Brewers ahead shortly after half-time.

Burton's Kyle McFadzean was sent off in the 89th minute for handling a shot.

Campbell dived to his left to save Albert Adomah's spot-kick and then denied the forward from the rebound.

Campbell came on in the first half after Stephen Bywater injured a shoulder in a clash with Adomah.

Five-time League Cup winners Villa, who made nine changes from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Reading, lacked cohesion and a cutting edge despite sustained spells of possession.
