The Spireites ended Albion's nine-match winning streak at the Pirelli Stadium thanks to Drew Talbot's superb 52nd-minute goal.

The victory lifted Cook's team up to 10th in the League Two table and kept alive their hopes of a late charge for a place in the play-offs.

"We've got a great game to look forward to now at home to Port Vale on Monday and we've got to keep fighting to see if we can make the play-offs," said Cook.

"I'm proud of the performance here but I'm not proud of our league position - and that's something we'll be trying to improve between now and the end of the season."

Cook was delighted after inflicting only a third home defeat of the season on Burton.

He added: "We came here to pass the ball and retain possession.

"You've got to respect a Burton team that have been nigh on unbeatable at home, so anyone that comes here on gets something must have played well.

"Burton are a very strong and powerful side and to come here and beat them was a great credit to our lads.

"It was a great goal from Drew, which is pleasing because we've been encouraging the lads to shoot more."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
