Ipswich Town were beaten 2-1 at Burton Albion on Saturday, as Scott Fraser's penalty miss proved costly. 

The Scot, playing against his former club, saw his spot kick saved midway through the second half, before Lucas Akins made Ipswich pay with a penalty of his own, just a few minutes before the final whistle.

Earlier in the contest, Joe Pigott had forced an own goal to level matters, after Joe Powell's opener.

Town were followed by a travelling army of 1,700 supporters, packing out the terrace behind the goal and providing an excellent atmosphere for Town's first away game of the season.

Warren Page captured the best of the action.
