Matt Clarke snatched the injury time winner in a match that wasn’t short of talking points, including an incident involving a pyro. 

However the latest development involves a mix up with the programme, which saw Burton print the wrong names for the Portsmouth match day squad. 

Instead of the likes of Jamal Lowe, Craig MacGillivray and Nathan Thompson, fans were shocked to discover names such as Adam Davies and Kieffer Moore.
