Nathan Pond scored his 50th Fleetwood Town goal in a dramatic win at Burton Albion.

David Ball gave the visitors a half time lead after kick-off was delayed by a hour due to a thunder storm.

But Burton hit back when Scott Davies’ punch hit Mark Roberts for a bizarre own goal.

Town hit back immediately, Pond heading in from Schumacher’s corner only to be pegged back by another own goal, Alex Marrow this time the man to put past his own keeper.

But Fleetwood kept on at their hosts and re-took the lead when Jon Parkin turned home Conor McLaughlin’s brave cross.

And victory was assured in injury time when Mikael Mandron broke gthrough the Burton lines.

With the home team appealing for offside he crossed for Junior Brown to make it four and set up a showdown at Scunthorpe on Monday.
