Following a goalless first half with the Brewers, James O'Shea fired the visitors ahead on 52 minutes, thumping Ritchie Humphreys's knock-down header past Dean Lyness.

The Spirettes took a giant step toward securing England's third tier on 79 minutes, as O'Shea found his second of the encounter to effectively kill off the game as a contest and clinch a return to League One following a two-year absence.
