It was Burton Albion’s day at the Globe Arena on Saturday.

Lucas Akins’ brace handed the Brewers a 2-1 win over Morecambe that also sealed promotion to League 1 with Wycombe only able to draw 0-0 at AFC Wimbledon.

Now boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is targeting the League 2 title after the club reached the highest level in their history.

The Chelsea and Leeds legend said: “It was an important day for the club but we want to be number one - I want the second target and that is winning the league.

“I want to stay there and the fans want to stay there - as winners.

“So, we’re going to relax today but from Monday we’re going to train hard again and make sure that we are ready for Northampton.

“We’ve got two more games and we need to prepare the right way and try to be right.”
