Burton Albion stay top of Sky Bet League One after a Jerome Binnom-Williams goal in the fourth minute of injury time helped them to a 2-1 victory at Chesterfield.

The Brewers went behind after just two minutes when Dan Gardener whipped a corner into the box for Sam Hird to nod home into the roof of the net, putting the home side in front.

Abdenasser El Khayati and Lucas Akins both missed chances to equalise but Burton were on top for vast spells of the match, and after Akins and El Khayati both missed further opportunities to level the scoring, top scorer Stuart Beavon slotted home calmly from close range less than a minute into the second half.

Akins could have added another two goals but the winger failed to convert, and Beavon had a shot well saved by Spireites keeper Tommy Lee.

Chesterfield never really looked like scoring again and, after denying Burton from a barrage of chances, must have thought they had secured a well-fought point but Binnom-Williams, on loan from Crystal Palace, slotted home from the left hand side after a swift counter attack to give Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side all three points.

They extend their lead at the top of League One to three points after a third successive victory, while Chesterfield drop to 15th after a third defeat in four.
