Midfielder Jimmy Phillips insists he will not be resting on his laurels after forcing his way into Burton Albion’s starting eleven.

The 20 year old winger has been a substitute for the Brewers this season but he has started the last two matches, scoring his first league goal for the Club in the 2-1 win at Grimsby last weekend.

With Irish wide man Keith Gilroy edging closer to full fitness after an injury lay-off, Phillips will not be taking his place in the side for granted.

He told the Club’s official website:

“I want to earn my place through my own good work, do my best for Burton and push us up the league and see where we can go.”

“It’s up to me to keep hold of my place in the team now that I’ve got it. Gilly is a great player, I have not seen him in a match situation but in training he is brilliant and he is someone that will keep me on my toes. I want to establish myself here and see how far I can go.”
