Matty is a product of the Burton Albion academy having made strong progress since linking up with the club as a youngster following his release by Derby County. 


Given his chance in the first team by Gary Rowett he became a key part of the team during the club’s League 2 days, playing a big part in Albion’s title winning side. 


His chances last season were restricted in League One although he did score the winner as Bolton Wanderers were dumped out of the League Cup. 


A spell on loan to Oldham Athletic gave Matty vital game time after Christmas and he returned for the run-in to the end of the League One season playing a big part as the Brewers secured their historic promotion to the second tier of English football.
