Burton manager Nigel Clough said:

"With the other results around today it was imperative that we got something out of this one, either a draw or a win. To win the game with all the nervous tension around the place, especially in the last 10 minutes, speaks volumes for the character of the players.

"I am very pleased with our two goals. It's a lovely strike from Marvin Sordell. Once he gets turned he hits it with such power and accuracy it's difficult for the goalkeeper. Then you get the second so quickly and it would have knocked the stuffing out of most teams but Leeds came straight back at us.

"To be one point away, as it stands, we won't be celebrating or anything until we get that point, hopefully at Barnsley. The dressing room is euphoric right now but tinged with an element of disappointment that it is not done yet. We thought we might do it today but it hasn't worked out that way so we keep battling on."
