Burton fought back to claim a 3-2 victory at Hereford thanks to two injury-time goals in a competitive encounter at Edgar Street.

Midfielder Rob Purdie opened the scoring for the Bulls from the penalty spot in the 19th minute after Calvin Zola had fouled Nathan Elder inside the area, although the Albion frontman soon made amends at the other end.

Jaques Maghoma swept over a cross from the left and the unmarked Zola headed past a diving David Cornell into the roof of the net from eight yards.

But Hereford regained the lead in the 34th minute when Tom Barkhuizen latched on to a pass from Purdie before beating Ross Atkins with a low drive from seven yards.

After the break Burton had several chances to level the game with Zola, Aaron Webster and Billy Kee all failing to find the target. Cornell came to Hereford's rescue when he saved on the line from Zola with five minutes remaining.

But Webster eventually levelled for the Brewers in the first minute of injury time with a fine strike from 20 yards, before it was left for Kee to have the final say when he fired home from the edge of the area in the 93rd minute.
