Burton recorded back-to-back victories with an impressive 4-0 win over Oxford on Saturday.
Two goals in each half from Calvin Zola and Jacques Maghoma, the former’s first strikes the season, gave the Brewers their third success of the campaign and their second at the Pirelli Stadium.
After losing three of their opening four games, Gary Rowett’s men secured two consecutive wins for the first time since November last year, with the triumph over United the third time that Albion have scored three or more goals in one game.
York, on the other hand, played out their second consecutive stalemate in a 1-1 draw at Exeter.
Michael Coulson’s fourth goal of the season gave the Minstermen the lead, only for them to concede a late equaliser, but there is no shame in earning a point away from home to a side which started the day in second place.
Gary Mills’ men have enjoyed a positive start to their first season in the Football League for eight years, and continue to look impressive on the road, having yet to be beaten away from Bootham Crescent.
Each time Albion have recorded a heavy victory they have gone on to lose the next game, and York may just take advantage of that complacency.Liz Owen
Verdict: Burton 1-2 York
