Burton Albion go in search of their second league win of the season as promotion contenders Fulham arrive at the Pirelli Stadium today (3pm).

The Brewers recovered well from their thrashing at the hands of Leeds United seven days ago by securing a goalless draw at Norwich City on Tuesday night.

Slavisa Jokanovic's Cottagers, meanwhile, were in action a day later than Albion, beating Hull City 2-1 for their first home win of the campaign.

This fixture ended 2-0 to the visitors last term - and Nigel Clough is hopeful his side can find the quality to match a Cottagers side he feels is right up there with the best in the division.

The report is out - here’s our verdict on Burton’s win today.

Someone's not happy with today's result...

Nigel Clough on today's result

The whole team impressed me. It’s probably our best result since we got promoted. They’ve certainly earned a day off after today.

Well how about that Brewers fans?

What a three points. Let’s see what Nigel Clough and Slavisa Jokanovic have to make of that enthralling match.

Full-time!

The Brewers secure a second win at the Pirelli this season thanks to goals from Stephen Warnock and Lucas Akins.

Oliver Norwood replied for the hosts, but Akins’ second-half penalty won it for Albion, who withstood a Fulham barrage to ensure they took all three points.

Stay tune for full-time reaction and analysis.

90: Fulham waste yet another opportunity

As Graham’s free-kick is crossed well over. Albion waiting for full-time whistle now.

90: Graham crosses from the left

But it’s well over.

90: Four minutes of added time

Four more minutes for the Brewers to hold on.

Stephen Warnock awarded man of the match.

89: Sessegnon heads wide

That came from a corner - tame effort from the youngster.

88: Brewers sub

Sordell makes way for Luke Varney.

87: Allen cuts out the free-kick well

And does superbly to set up a counter - but Lund can’t control the cross-field ball...

85: McFadzean takes out Sessegnon

And Fulham have a free-kick around 25 yards out.

McFadzean booked.

83: Today's attendance is in

There’s 4,049 in attendance here as Burton look to hold on...

82: Less than ten minutes to go

Can the Brewers hold on?

80: Sordell counters

And tries to thread through Murphy, but it’s cut out by Kalas.

79: Fulham sub

Jordan Graham is replacing Oliver Norwood.

79: Allen shoots!

But it’s well over, out of the ground in fact.

Nigel Clough applauds Allen...

77: Sean Scannell makes way for Matty Lund

It’s the Brewers’ first sub of the afternoon.

75: Ojo is played through again

But he’s miles offside...

74: Johansen shoots!

But it’s way over from another Sessegnon cross - good chance there.

73: Sessegnon looks for another cross

But Bywater is equal to it once again.

71: Fulham starting to pile the pressure on

Kalas’ pass forward is nicely intercepted by Allen.

70: Fulham sub

Their first change of the afternoon sees Neeskens Kebano come off for Rui Fonte.

70: BAR!

Ojo smacks the bar somehow after a lovely cross! No wonder he looks in disbelief!

67: Kalas fires a shot towards goal

But a deflection on the way takes the sting out of it and Bywater claims it.

There's only one man to turn to in that situation...

PICTURE: Could this be the decisive moment in the game?
