James Beattie's stoppage-time equaliser secured a crucial point in Accrington Stanley's bid for League survival.
The Reds twice took the lead against Burton but the League Two promotion hopefuls struck twice in quick succession to lead 3-2 with 17 minutes left.
Stanley left it late to secure a draw but it was no more than they deserved. The result left the Reds two points clear of the drop zone with four games left.
A minute's applause as held for club legend Jack Barrett, who reformed Stanley in 1968, after he passed away at the weekend, and just seven minutes in the Reds looked on course for a winning tribute.
Lee Molyneux's fierce strike was parried by Burton keeper Stuart Tomlinson and Will Hatfield's follow-up crossed the line before being cleared.
Albion drew level in the 36th minute after a defensive mix-up between keeper Paul Rachubka and right-back Peter Murphy, with Burton's Matt Patterson nudging the ball over the line.
Padraig Amond had a header tipped over just before half-time but the fit-again striker restored the Reds' lead on the hour mark, lifting the ball in from Rommy Boco's pass.
But Burton again drew level in the 67th minute as Zander Diamond hooked in from close range, before Jacques Maghoma beat Rachubka with a dipping 25-yard free-kick.
Amond had a goal disallowed as Stanley pushed for a point while Molyneux's 25-yard strike was tipped onto the bar but when the keeper parried Molyneux's low shot, substitute Beattie was on hand to convert the rebound from close range.
