The Brewers continued to attack with Marcus Harness and Marvin Sordell getting into some promising positions and stretching the Villa defence without finding a killer touch inside the box.

Albion finished with ten men though after Kyle McFadzean was sent off for handball on the line in the 89th minute before Harry Campbell produced his heroics by saving a last minute penalty, securing the win for the Brewers.
