Burton come from behind to beat visiting Birmingham City 2-1. Second half goals from Marvin Sordell and Lloyd Dyer earned the Brewers their first points of the new season. Former Brewer Jacques Maghoma, put the visitors in front when he was able to put the ball in the net through a crowded box at the 29th minute. The second half started brighter for the home side when Matty Palmer had an early chance from the edge of the box. Burton piled on the pressure and reaped the rewards when Sordell struck a superb strike to level the match 5 minutes into the second half. Dyer secured the 3 points when Lucas Akins back heeled the ball into the path of Dyer and put the ball past Stockdale from close range. Burton play Cardiff City next at the Cardiff City Stadium in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday the 22 of August 2017 with a 19:45 kick off.
