The 2-1 victory kept up Burton’s record of winning or losing by just a single goal in every game this season.

For Spireites it was another disappointing result at the Proact, as they dropped to 15th in the table and gave up yet another lead.

Second-placed Walsall were held 1-1 at home by second-bottom Crewe, Ben Nugent equalising for the visitors after Tom Bradshaw opened the scoring.

Gillingham remain third, despite their 2-0 defeat at Barnsley, Ben Pearson and Sam Winnall on target for the Tykes.

Bury joined Coventry City on 16 points, but lie just below them on goal difference, after a 2-1 win over the Sky Blues.

Leon Clarke bagged a brace for Bury, and Reda Johnson got Coventry’s goal.

A derby victory put Sheffield United in the final play-off spot.

The Blades were 3-1 winners at home to Doncaster Rovers, Billy Sharp scoring against his former side, adding to goals from Chris Basham and Conor Sammon.

Cameron Stewart got on the scoresheet for Rovers.
