FATIGUE plaqyed its part as Uttoxeter 2XV powered to a 30-14 victory after dominating the second half.
The home side immediately piled on the pressure which Burton absorbed. Uttoxeter demonstarted some good off-loading skills but the experienced Ian Weakford and Lee Gilleland in the Burton centres refused to let anything through.
However, after 10 minutes of pressure Uttoxeter scored with a well worked move down the blind-side. And the extras made it 7-0 to the home side.
For the remainder of the half Burton were camped inside the Uttoxeter half. Nick Dermott, Ian Baker and Adam Smith in the back row punched holes at every opportunity,
Uttoxeter were guilty of a series of infringements and after sustained pressure on the five-metre line the referee had no alternative but to award Burton a penalty try.
Minutes later a home player was sin-binned for 10 minutes for persistent off-side offences but despite another excellent passage of excellentplay Burton were unable to add further points.
Uttoxeter rang the changes at the break and upped the intensity of their game, Burton also made changes with Chris Samways coming off to allow Sean Batchelor a run out and Matt Kirkpatrick giving Ben Waldron a breather.
Stand-in hooker Cain Abel was causing his usual havoc, backed up by Kirkpatrick and Kevin Jevon. But as the second-half progressed fitness became an issue for the visiting squad which allowed Uttoxeter three quick tries.
Burton refused to give up and Williams linked with Gilleland and Weakford for the latter to score a Waldron-converted try.
