Ellery Balcombe earned his second start for Burton Albion in midweek in as they were beaten by Aston Villa’s Under-21s in the Papa John’s Trophy.
The young Goalkeeper played the full 90 minutes in a game where Albion went 2-0 up within 23 minutes through Daniel Jebbison and Kane Hemmings.
Cameron Archer grabbed his first of the evening 10 minutes before the break before the young side really came into the ascendancy in the second half. Tristan Abledeen-Goodridge levelled things six minutes after half-time before two more goals came for Archer which saw them claim a 4-2 win as Albion exited the competition.
Burton return to league action on Saturday as they travel to the South West to take on Plymouth Argyle. They are currently ninth in Sky Bet League One.
