  • GOAL FOR BURTON ALBION! COLIN DANIEL! 1-0! What a start for the hosts! They're ahead with barely a minute on the board and Aston Villa have had the worst possible start! Albion push early and a speculative pass into the box allows Edwards to shrug off his defender. It gives him enough time to square the ball back across the face of the net, and suddenly the defender is there, delivering a right-footed finish that buries itself in at the near-left post. First blood to Jake Buxton's men!

  • It's an unfortunate early bath for Michael Bostwick who is at least able to walk unaided from the field with his injury. Owen Gallacher takes his place for Burton.

  • GOAL FOR ASTON VILLA! OLLIE WATKINS! 1-1! It's the record signing, on debut! Villa have been pushing to square things up since they conceded and they've finally been rewarded for their efforts. Grealish draws three defenders down to the left corner and slips the ball out to Taylor, whose delivery across the face of the box is bundled in at close range by the striker. Game on.

  • Here comes the Burton gamble now - with a third of the game to go, they're bringing on their remaining subs. It's Ciaran Gilligan who arrives for Lawless.

  • Ramsey puts Powell on the turf with a sliding challenge that sees him flashed a yellow card - but more concerningly, hands Burton a set-piece chance in scoring distance. Quinn opts to try and outfox the defence by playing it flat through on the left - but his touch is too heavy and it skitters away for a goal-kick.

  • Aston Villa now make their first changes of the match. It's been a fine debut for Ollie Watkins, with a goal to his name no less - but he now makes way for Keinan Davis in these final stages.

  • GOAL FOR ASTON VILLA! JACK GREALISH! 2-1! Was it going to be anyone else in the end? The England international celebrates his new contract with what may well be the goal that sends them to the third round of the EFL Cup. Outside the box for once, the corner finds him just over 20 yards out, and he catches it on the volley with the outside of his right foot. It's a messy shot - but one with a wicked bounce that takes it beneath two defenders and past the diving Sherman-Lowe into the bottom-right corner. Villa have their lead.

  • GOAL FOR ASTON VILLA! KEINAN DAVIS! 3-1! And that will be that! The substitute is released through a lovely ball from Douglas Luiz in midfield, cuts back in on himself and buries the ball past Sherman-Lowe to surely confirm Burton's defeat. Villa are heading to the third round of the EFL Cup.
