Burton Albion maintained their title push with a convincing 3-1 victory at Cheltenham Town.

It took Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's team 21 minutes to break through a Robins defence that has not kept a clean sheet in League Two since September 16. A low shot from Darragh Lenihan was blocked by Robins skipper Matt Taylor, but the ball fell to Stuart Beavon and he finished superbly past Trevor Carson. Burton's lead was doubled in the 36th minute when Lucas Akins' cross from the right was helped on by Jacob Blyth and Adam McGurk capitalised on hesitancy from two defenders to nod into the net. Cheltenham were made to pay for another defensive lapse four minutes into the second half. Phil Edwards was left completely unmarked to head in McGurk's corner from the left and make it 3-0 to the Brewers. Wes Burns, one of six debutants on show for Cheltenham, pulled one back in the 56th minute, crashing a shot into the net after a strong run into the box.
