Pearson: Hero of the day

Burton came from behind to beat Morecambe 3-2 and register their first win of the campaign thanks to Greg Pearson.

The Brewers enjoyed a flying start when midfielder Aaron Webster made a perfectly-timed run to power home a 12-yard header from full-back Andy Corbett's cross in the first minute.

But the visitors were quickly level as Andrew Fleming neatly tuned home a Darren Moss cross from eight yards.

A bright start to the second half by Morecambe was rewarded with their second goal in the 51st minute. Phil Jevons' shot came back off the inside of a post but Chris Shuker was on hand to set up Fleming for another close-range finish.

Craig Stanley went close to a third goal for the visitors, but Burton came back to level the scores in the 75th minute when Webster pounced from six yards after Morecambe failed to clear Lewis Young's corner kick.

Pearson struck the winner from the spot in the 81st minute after being bundled over by Paul Scott.
