Burton Albion 1-3 Aston Villa: Jack Grealish scores late Carabao Cup volley

15/09/2020 23:42

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish and Keinan Davis hit late goals after record signing Ollie Watkins scores on his debut to help knock Burton Albion out of the Carabao Cup.

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish scored with a fine late volley as his side came from behind to knock League One side Burton Albion out of the Carabao Cup.

Home defender Colin Daniel stung Villa with his first goal for the club after just 64 seconds to create hopes of another upset, like two seasons ago.

But £28m record signing Ollie Watkins levelled on 37 minutes on his debut.

Then, after Grealish's strike, Keinan Davis added an injury-time third.

Burton, who beat Villa 1-0 at the Pirelli Stadium at the same stage of the EFL Cup two seasons ago, made four changes from Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Fleetwood.

And it was one of them, defender Daniel, who got the evening off to such a dramatic start.

Villa failed to clear their lines in Burton's first attack and Daniel arrived on the left corner of the box to rocket a superb finish into the top corner.

Watkins equalised when Grealish's neat reverse ball freed Neil Taylor to cross from the left.

And, on the day he marked his long-term commitment to the club by signing a five-year contract, new England midfielder Grealish then put his side ahead, lashing a low left-foot volley into the bottom right corner on 88 minutes to end fear of a penalty shootout.

Villa, who had been camped in the Burton box for most of the second half, added a third two minutes into injury time through substitute Davis, who had come on for Watkins on 71 minutes.

Villa must travel again in the third round to meet the winners of Wednesday's tie between Bristol City and Northampton Town.

But, before then, Villa will be more concerned with next Monday's Premier League campaign opener at home to Sheffield United.

Burton's first home league game of the season is this Saturday against Accrington Stanley.
