Telford emerged 7-4 winners over Burton from an amazing 11-goal
thriller at Eton Park.

Telford took the lead after 16 minutes with a shot from Kevin Davies
and went two goals up a minute later when Martin Barlow netted from
long range.

Burton pulled a goal back after 24 minutes through Darren Stride but
their joy was short-lived when a Mark Foran header and then a Gareth
Hanmer free-kick put Telford 4-1 up.

On the stroke of half-time Burton were awarded two penalties.

The first from Christian Moore was saved by Paul Edwards but Craig
Dudley made no mistake with the second after Foran had brought down
Moore moments later.

Telford hit the crossbar twice in a minute early in the second half
before Burton scored when Moore volleyed home after 53 minutes.

Albion had Paul Talbot dismissed for *** conduct two minutes later
but Nigel Clough`s men refused to lie down and levelled the score
through Moore with a delicate lob after 61 minutes.

However, Telford pulled clear courtesy of a Paul Moore brace, and
Jordan King completed the scoring in stoppage time.
