Striker backs Albion to march to wins this month
Striker Billy Kee says the Albion squad are focused on the final 12 games of the season as the Brewers look to finish the 2013/14 season with success.
Kee’s brace against his former side Accrington Stanley meant the former Leicester City forward now has 12 goals in all competitions this season and is Albion’s top scorer ahead of fellow forward Adam McGurk.
Kee said: “It was important that we rested for a couple of days and then get back into it hard this week.
“The gaffer gets us up for it each game and us as players we got into it game by game.”
Albion are currently placed in fourth place ahead of the away trip to Oxford United on Saturday (3pm) and the 23-year-old stress the importance of a productive run-in.
“We have to think that only have 12 games left and we need to push on and win every game we can,” explained Kee.
A second brace of the season for Kee on Saturday saw the Brewers return to winning ways after not recording a win since the 1-0 win against Morecambe in early February.
Kee stress the importance of the team’s performance rather than his two goals.
“It was a team win, the two goals felt good but I thought we really worked hard as a team against Accrington Stanley and it showed because we got the result in the end.
“There were a lot of battle on the pitch and in the end everyone put their shifts in and we got the rewards.
“I didn't really see the penalty decision that we got but I just had to focus and pick the ball up and put it in the net and I did that.”
At 5ft 9in Kee would not be described as a target man but the striker himself admits he is a fan of the physical side of being a forward in Sky Bet League 2.
“I quiet like it (the physical responsibilities of being a striker), they were quiet hard defenders against Accrington and it was a very physical battle, it wasn’t just me, the whole team had to get into a physical battle.
“It was nice to score against Accrington especially as I was getting lots of stick before I scored, but it’s about the team not me.”
