MARVIN Sordell believes that the intensity displayed in the second-half was crucial to Burton securing their first win of the season over Birmingham City

The Brewers moved off of the foot of the Championship table with a 2-1 win over Harry Redknapp's Blues, with Sordell scoring his first of the campaign. 

City had taken a 1-0 lead into half-time before former Watford striker Sordell scored a stunning equaliser after turning on the edge of the penalty area. 

Lloyd Dyer then scored the winner for the Brewers as Nigel Clough's men completed a stunning fight-back.

Sordell believes that the intensity of the hosts in the second-half was key to securing the win.

"It was a very fast [half] and we upped the intensity a lot from the first-half so that really helped us and we got the result at the end of the day."

The versatile front-man has often found himself featuring in wide areas, but Sordell insists that mindset does not change, regardless of where he is picked to play. 

"Regardless of where I play, I am going to give my all and try to create and score goals, whether I am out-wide or up-front.

"Fortunately today, I have been up front and scored."
