Burton 3-2 Rochdale
26th December 2012
Pirelli Stadium

A five-goal thriller saw Burton come out on top to edge out Rochdale on Boxing Day to get back to winning ways.

The Brewers got off to a fine start with goals from Billy Kee (15) and Calvin Zola (25) seeing them race into a two-goal lead before the half hour mark. Minutes before the half time break Rochdale came back into the game through a fine strike from Peter Cavanagh (41).

Rochdale took advantage of a gift to draw level shortly after the break when Bobby Grant (54) equalised.

Burton soon regrouped though with Kee (57) restoring the lead, which they held onto this time to earn a 3-2 win.
