Accrington manager John Coleman was full of praise for on-loan striker Wes Fletcher after his strike gave Stanley a 2-1 victory which ended Burton's unbeaten start to the league campaign.
Burnley hitman Fletcher fired home his second goal in three games nine minutes from time as Stanley had to come from behind to win their second game of the season.
"Wes could have had a hat-trick, he was a threat all the game he did well and it was a superb finish," said Coleman. "We know he can do that which is why we brought him to the club.
"We played well in the first half but Justin Richards timed his run well and finished well for their goal.
"We were disappointed to be trailing at half-time but we had the bit between our teeth after the break and got the goals we deserved."
Burton boss Paul Peschisolido called on his side to improve at the back after the end to their unbeaten league start.
He said: "We knew it would be a difficult place to come, it's been a fortress for them, and that they would be wounded following the 4-1 defeat to Port Vale so we knew they would come at us.
"You have got to give them a great deal of credit although I thought we were well worth a draw. We had a couple of chances but didn't take them and we should have scored more goals.
"The goals we conceded are disappointing but we need to get some consistency in our game if we want to achieve anything in this league. We have got to smarten up at the back and that's everyone, not just the back four.
"This is a disappointment but you have got to be realistic, we have had a good start to the season, we have performed well and this was a set back and although you would like to, you are not going to win all your games."
