Lucas has been the Brewers top scorer in two of his three seasons at the club since joining for a nominal fee from Stevenage in the summer of 2014.

A hugely popular figure both in the dressing room and amongst the fans Lucas' hard working performances and knack of grabbing vital goals has made him a key part of Albion's rise through the divisions from League 2 to the Championship.

Originally on the books of hometown club Huddersfield Town he made his way through the ranks to make his Terriers debut in August 2007 before dropping into non-league on loan with Northwich Victoria in search of senior level experience.

After leaving Huddersfield spells with Partick Thistle and Hamilton Academicals in Scotland eventually led to a move back into English professional football with Tranmere Rovers.

Numerous eye-catching performances at Prenton Park persuaded Stevenage to pay a sizeable fee to boost their attack and they were rewarded with 10 goals in 49 games as Lucas finished top scorer at Broadhall Way.

Gary Rowett made Lucas a key target as he looked to win promotion from League 2 and Lucas led the scoring charts as Albion won successive promotions. Lucas has also scored on the opening day of the season for each of the last three campaigns.
