Lee Bell gave the visitors a 34th-minute lead with his fourth goal of the season and first for five games. But man-of-the-match Scott, back at Victoria Road after a loan spell at Ebbsfleet, equalised in the 51st minute with his second goal in as many games to secure a point.

"It wasn't the one player who made the difference, but all credit to Josh because he took his goal really well," praised Hackett.

"The situation with Josh is that he went out on loan - and maybe it was the kick up the backside he needed.

"He's come back, got the bit between his teeth and wants to prove a point to everybody that he is a good player.

"Josh is a good player. He got a goal on Tuesday, it lifted his confidence and he's got another goal. Onwards and upwards for Josh."

Hackett added: "It was most definitely a game of two halves. It was a disappointing first half from ourselves because we didn't create many chances.

"And Burton, in all fairness, are the form team at the moment and they really did put us on our back foot.

"We went in at half-time, we regrouped and said to the players that we've got to match Burton's work-rate.

"I certainly think we did that. We played more on the front foot, our midfield two pressed on and our strikers held up better. I thought we got a just reward with a great goal from Josh."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
