Watkins scores on debut in Aston Villa win over Burton

Ollie Watkins scored on debut as Aston Villa secured a 3-1 victory over Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Brewers defender Colin Daniel gave the home side a shock lead after just two minutes.

But £28m record signing Ollie Watkins levelled on 37 minutes on his debut.

Jack Grealish's excellent volley put Villa ahead with two minutes remaining before Kienan Davis sealed the win in extra-time.

Dean Smith's side will now meet the winners of Wednesday's tie between Bristol City and Northampton Town in the third-round.
