Burton Albion (a)

Burton Albion 1 Exeter City 0.

Monday 27 November 2006.

Exeter went down to a disappointing defeat in front of the Sky cameras in this Monday night clash at the Pirelli Stadium, as these two promotion-chasing clubs came head to head. The deadlock was broken after half an hour, after Clare's through ball ricocheted off Jon Richardson - straight into the path of Andrew Corbett, who slotted coolly past Paul Jones. The introduction of Mackie from the bench breathed new life into City's attacks, but after a fine run through the defence Mackie snatched at his shot and the ball flew over the bar, stretching Exeter's winless run in front of the TV cameras to 13 games.

City's line up: Paul Jones, Woodards, Richardson, Edwards, Billy Jones, Taylor, Buckle, Gill, Challinor, Stansfield, Phillips.

BBC match summary and information 

Burton Albion moved up to fourth in the Conference after beating Exeter thanks to Andrew Corbett's first-half goal.

Corbett guided the ball into the corner of the net after Daryl Clare's pass was deflected into his path.

Prior to the goal Exeter's Adam Stansfield had picked up Darren Tinson's weak back-pass, but the angle proved too tight for the City player.

Lee Phillips was presented with a sight on goal on the hour but he was quickly closed down by Tinson and shot tamely.
