Burton Albion are in action at Highgate United tonight (7:45pm) in the second round of the Birmingham Senior Cup, with a Chris Beardsley and Nick Fenton starting for the Brewers.

It's an otherwise youthful side, with the familiar Jayden Cotterill, Jack Hallahan, Reece Hutchinson and Harry Campbell all in action at The Coppice.

The Brewers overcame Bedworth United 3-1 last time out, with Matty Lund, Ben Fox and an own goal completing the scoring on a chilly night at Bedworth. #

It's a typical November night here in the West Midlands, and you can follow every kick live here on SportMail.

Signing off from a blustery Highgate - what a final 20 minutes that was...

See you on Saturday at the Pirelli with the visit of Sunderland.

Come on you Brewers!

100% agree

Full-time!

Phew!

A breathless final 20 minutes ignited a match that didn’t have an awful lot to say for itself.

Once Highgate went ahead, the Brewers never looked back and took control of the game with super-sub Shaun Barker netting and Reece Hutchinson bagging the winner.

A good run out for the younger lads, and definitely an experience that will steel them in the world of football.

Highgate United 2-3 Burton Albion.

90: Close!

It’s a lovely bended effort from Highgate - and the wind nearly takes it in...

90: We're into injury time

I’d expect plenty of added time...

It's been a while...

89: It's all getting a bit ill-tempered now...

Highgate are aggrieved at the assistant’s decision to rule Barker’s goal over the line after a scramble...

87: Brewers having to see this out now

Highgate, stunned by the Brewers’ own quick-fire double, are coming to level once more...

85: GOALLLLLLLLLLL!

Burton now in front after some great work by Reece Hutchinson down the left! Brewers respond in the best way to that two-minute double from the hosts...

85: Goal! It's all happening at the Coppice!

81: GOAL!

Highgate in front!

Burton fail to deal with a cross and it’s turned in despite protests for offside by the Brewers defence.

Shell-shocked, Burton now trail 2-1.

79: GOAL!

Highgate level, and it’s turned in from close range after the Brewers fail to deal with a goalmouth scramble...

77: Cotterill lunges in

It’s a nasty tackle by the skipper, and it looks like he’s got away with one...

76: Big chance!

Dowd fires well over after some good work by the Brewers attack -a big chance to put this game to bed missed!

72: Final Brewers sub

Goalscorer Beardsley makes way for Shaun Barker - who is going up top...

68: Dowd has the ball in the back of the net

But referee Andrew Ellis spots a foul in the build-up...

65: GOAL!

Chris Beardsley rounds the ‘keeper following some great work by Charlie Dowd.

Highgate 0-1 Burton.

63: Big chance!

Highgate spring the offside trap and spurn a great opportunity, firing wide past Harry Campbell who was beaten all-ends-up...

Definitely worth noting that the first-team 'keeper has done well

60: Second Albion sub

James Harrison departs for Tristan Matthews.

59: Jake Davies opts to go it alone

And blazes over. His strikers are aghast that he didn’t cross to them.

57: Nothing coming off for either side

A slow start to this second-half.

A friendly reminder that in the event of a draw, we’ll go straight to a penalty shoot-out...

56: Nothing doing from the corner

That’s because the referee spotted a high foot and has awarded the Brewers a free-kick.

55: Cotterill launches a backpass to Campbell

And the Brewers’ ‘keeper slices out for a Highgate corner.

53: First Brewers sub

Cooke is replaced by Jake Davies.

51: Hutchinson plays in Beardsley

But an excellent tackle from a Highgate defender averts an almost certain goal.

49: Hutchinson floats a cross into the back post

But the Highgate defenders clear...

Back underway here at the Coppice

And the rain is coming down once again, with the pitch getting an absolute battering...

Indeed they are...

45: Highgate go close on the stroke of half-time!

A ball is fizzed across from the left, and the striker fires it over.

The whistle goes for half-time, and it’s 0-0 at the break here at the Coppice.
