100 up for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink - Burton Albion boss reaches points milestone after 48 games

25 November 2015

Every win is significant, but Burton Albion's victory at Wigan Athletic holds a particular importance.

Not only did it end the Latics' unbeaten home form of 2015/16, it took Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's points tally as Burton manager to 100, after only 48 matches in charge.

Following his appointment on 13th November 2014, the Brewers notched 65 points last term on their way to securing promotion from Sky Bet League 2.

And they've adapted well to life in the higher division, with their victory at the DW Stadium taking them onto 35 points after 18 matches – enough to sit a lofty third in the division and only three points off top spot.

The JFH Burton statistics:

48 league games in charge; 30 wins
65 points under Hasselbaink in 2014/15
35 points under Hasselbaink in 2015/16
100 points collected from a possible 144

Abdenasser El Khayati scored the only goal of their latest victory, which was their first ever Football League meeting with Wigan.

Here's a look at five of the stand-out results the Brewers have achieved under the guidance of Hasselbaink:

17/11/14: Wycombe Wanderers 1-3 Burton Albion – Sky Bet League 2

Four days after his appointment, Hasselbaink took his men to fellow promotion-chasers Wycombe and watched them record a 3-1 victory in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Phil Edwards, Alex MacDonald and Jacob Blyth scored the goals, which came just over a week after they had lost 5-0 to Barnsley in the FA Cup.

22/11/14: Burton Albion 1-0 Luton Town – Sky Bet League 2

Hasselbaink's second game at the helm brought the challenge of Luton, who were unbeaten in 11 games.

Phil Edwards was the man on target again and the win moved the Brewers level on points with Wycombe at the Sky Bet League 2 summit.

18/04/15: Morecambe 1-2 Burton Albion – Sky Bet League 2

Lucas Akins was at the double for the Brewers to secure promotion to Sky Bet League 1 for the first time in the club's history with a 2-1 victory at Morecambe.

Akins struck on the half-hour mark and the hour mark, and that was enough to give Hasselbaink his first promotion as manager.

02/05/15: Cambridge United 2-3 Burton Albion – Sky Bet League 2

The final game of the 2014/15 season brought another three points for Burton and that saw them clinch the Sky Bet League 2 title.

They were trailing 2-1 to Cambridge in the closing stages but late goals from Phil Edwards and Kevin Stewart sealed a historic victory in front of nearly 1,900 travelling Brewers fans.

19/09/15: Swindon Town 0-1 Burton Albion – Sky Bet League 1

Hasselbaink's Burton hit the summit of Sky Bet League 1 in their inaugural foray in the third tier with a 1-0 victory at Swindon Town in mid-September.

Stuart Beavon scored the only goal of the match and it secured the Brewers their first ever victory at the County Ground against the Robins.
