WEST Riding Division I strugglers Kirkburton notched three important points as they attempt to string some wins together to edge away from the danger zone.
A Lee Bradley strike, plus an own goal, gave Burton a second League win from 12 matches against fellow strugglers Dudley Hill Rangers, who had beaten Burton 3-2 a couple of weeks ago.
Chris Parker and Bradley went close inside the opening 12 minutes and Steve Chandler hit the crossbar with a 30 yard effort.
Dudley Hill didn't trouble Burton until the 27th minute but the striker shot wide.
On 35 minutes the referee got in the way of another Chandler shot but soon after Burton took a deserved lead when Parker teed up Bradley to fire home.
Just before the break Chandler skilfully curled a free-kick around the four-man wall, only to be denied yet again by the crossbar.
On 67 minutes young player Ryan Jagger sent in a low cross for Damian Ives who just missed connecting. Dudley won a throw-in down the left and they sent their big centre-back up, who won the flick on and the equaliser was forced over the line.
But the goal re-invigorated Burton, who proceded to fire crosses into the Dudley penalty area, and on 80 minutes Burton were awarded a dubious free-kick when Ives was adjudged to have been fouled.
Chandler struck the dead-ball and once again was denied by the bar, but man-of-the-match John Allison retrieved the rebound out on the right and drove in a superb cross for Jez Elson to dive in with a Dudley defender, who headed into his own goal.
Burton's second string travelled to Hunsworth and won 3-0 with goals from Joe Nixon, Jordan Tindle and Joe King.
