Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett heaps praise upon Billy Kee and Calvin Zola after the strike partners lead the Brewers to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Rochdale.

Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett heaped praise upon Billy Kee and Calvin Zola after the strike partners led the Brewers to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Rochdale on Boxing Day.

Kee bagged a brace and provided a superb back-heeled assist for Zola's decisive strike, as Rowett's men recorded their first win in three matches.

"I told the front two before the game that they could win it for us as a pair - and that's what they've done," said Rowett.

"On their day they are a real threat and they were terrific this time. I just wish they were both on their day more often.

"Just look at the chances we created, an awful lot of them."

Zola has scored seven goals in 18 league appearances this season, while Kee has hit seven in 20.
