Aaron Webster paid tribute to Burton's "never-say-die attitude" following their comeback 3-2 win over Morecambe.
The defender's second goal drew the scores level at 2-2 before Greg Pearson bagged a late winner from the spot to seal the points.
"When we were 2-1 down they were on top of us but we dug in," Webster told the Derby Telegraph. "That's what this team is about. All the lads do everything for each other and there's a never-say-die attitude.
"Over the years I can't remember how many comebacks we've made and we've done it again.
"It's wrong to say we only try when we're losing but it can give you an extra push to try and get it back. We never gave up and got the goals some of our play deserved."
