Burton Albion’s Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink targets Sky Bet League 2 title

20 April 2015

Burton Albon boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said his side will be going all out to win the Sky Bet League 2 title after securing promotion against Morecambe.

On a memorable day for the Brewers, two goals from Lucas Akins sealed the three points Burton needed to ensure their elevation as they won 2-1 and Wycombe Wanderers were unable to beat AFC Wimbledon.

Hasselbaink said: "I am delighted for everyone at the club that we have secured promotion but that is only one goal.

"The job isn't finished yet and I want to end the season on a high.

"We have two games left and I want us to go all the way and win the league and complete the job.

"It has been a great season and the lads have handled it really well. We were always in control and we created a lot of chances and apart from a spell at the start of the second half and a few minutes right at the end we were on top.”

Hasselbaink also paid tribute to his predecessor Gary Rowett, adding: "Gary started the job here and must take a lot of credit for what the club has achieved.

"We have come in and made a few changes but the base was there and I'm delighted that we have been able to build on his success.”
