After leaving Sheffield United for Burton Albion in the summer, Daniel Jebbison got his first goal for the Brewers as they saw off Portsmouth 2-1 last night.
Jebbison was given another chance by Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and repaid his new manager in full. The United teenager turned expertly on the edge of the Portsmouth box, before firing into the top corner.
Everyone at Bramall Lane can see the potential in ‘Jebbo’. But despite getting his first goal of the season, Jebbison insisted it’s time to keep working hard and make sure it’s the first of money.
“I felt good, it always feels good to score. But it needs to be the first of many and I need to keep going, get my head down, work hard in training,” Jebbison said.
“I’ll get back to the training ground and just try and be even better. But yeah, it felt good.”
Jebbison has already made an impact at Bramall Lane after scoring at Everton in the Premier League last term. Many United fans wanted to keep the youngster around. However, Slavisa Jokanovic felt his progress would be best served in a loan spell.
One goal won’t be enough for Daniel Jebbison
And that’s not us saying it. It’s clear from his interview that he is hungry for success at Burton and wants to score more and more goals.
His manager Hasselbaink was delighted for him. The Dutchman telling Burton’s official website that he was delighted for the youngster.
“He picked the most difficult chance and he put it magnificently away. It was important for us after Saturday that he played straight away and got another chance. That’s what good strikers need.”
Hopefully, this can be the start of a brilliant run of games and form for Jebbison. He’s got the best manager possible to learn from, so if all goes well, this will turn out a smart move by United.
