BEN Fox expressed his delight after scoring his first league goal for the Brewers in the 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers.

The Academy graduate was introduced as a second-half substitute with the score still at 0-0. However, just after the fourth official had raised his board indicating four minutes of added time, Fox produced a sumptuous turn inside the box and poked the ball home to secure a crucial three points for Albion. 

The midfielder, who scored his first professional goal for the club against Cardiff City in the Carabao cup last season, was delighted that he was able to notch his first league goal, but insisted that the result was more important that personal achievement.

He said: “Every kind of emotion comes at you (when you score). Thankfully it went in, because it was a bit of a scrappy finish. I am delight for the team because we deserved a good result and hopefully we can get some more going forward.

“The gaffer has always spoke about two midfielders getting into the box. Lucas has managed to get the cross in and I thought that (where I was stood) was the only place that he could get it to me. Thankfully, I was in the right place at the right time and was able to poke it in.”
