"I thought I should do my thing" - Burton Albion's Nasser El-Khayati

26 October 2015

Nasser El-Khayati was in buoyant mood after scoring the goal that ensured victory for Burton Albion in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday.

The Brewers had gone three games without a win, but the 2-0 success over Staffordshire rivals Port Vale in Matchday 15 saw them close the gap on the top two, after Gillingham and Walsall both drew.

El-Khayati was delighted with his fine solo effort that put the gloss on the result, telling the club's official website: "I made a move to the left and I thought that I should do my thing and go for the goal.

"It is always a good feeling to score especially for me after the last few weeks. I had a feeling I could do better, especially in the final third, but finally I have my goal.

"I normally cut inside, but this time I went outside to come back inside again. I have to mix it up a bit.

"We had a few disappointing results but now we have three points against a tough opponent like Port Vale and it's always good when you win because you can be happy, work hard, and look to the next game."
