Kirkburton overcame fellow strugglers Halifax Irish 2-0 in the West Riding County Premier.
The win was a much needed boost for Richard Kettlewell’s men after a challenging winter period, which has seen them lose five games on the bounce in all competitions.
From the start it wasn’t evident Kirburton were playing off the back of a heavy 6-0 thumping away at Storthes Hall.
In fact Burton played some good football in the opening minutes creating two glorious opportunities.
The first of them fell to talented youngster Matthew Crookes, who rounded the keeper but fluffed his shot with an open goal at his mercy.
The second chance fell to Luke Jackson who was bearing down on goal, but the keeper was on hand to pull of a brilliant save to keep the scores level.
Shortly afterwards Irish had a chance to take the lead through their number ten, whose header was directed towards goal which forced a remarkable save out of Jack Peacock between the sticks, the follow up shot was then cleared off the line.
Burton were living dangerously, but on 35 minutes were on the attack and finally managed to break the deadlock when make shift centre forward Brendan Aspinall stroked the ball past the Irish keeper to put the visitors 1-0 in front.
In the second half Burton looked comfortable, thwarting any danger with relative ease, however Peacock had to remain alert on occasion to save a couple of half chances that were forged out by Halifax.
Mid-way through the half Crookes picked out Jackson in the box with a perfect cross, but Jackson failed to make the most of the chance, volleying his effort high and wide.
The game looked set to remain at 1-0 until, in the 82nd minute, Aspinall ensured all three points for the visitors with an accurate strike into the bottom corner.
It rounded off a brilliant day for Burton, who desperately needed a win to put an end to their horrendous run of results.
Kettlewell will also be relieved his side finally kept a clean sheet having shipped 12 goals in the last two games and the win moves Burton up to 11th in the West Riding Premier just four points behind Halifax Irish who drop to ninth following the defeat.
