Burton’s clash against Bournemouth was delayed after three floodlight failures at the Pirelli Stadium. Oliver Sarkic gave Nigel Clough’s side the lead before the three blowouts occurred during the second-half.

Fans had started to leave the stadium but they were told to head back and the game restarted. Nathan Broadhead doubled Burton’s lead in the 72nd minute and they held firm in the 28 minutes of added time that was played due to the lengthy stoppages earlier in the half.
