Kee was on target on Sunday to secure a 1-0 win against Accrington, a second successive victory and clean sheet for Gary Rowett's men, which sent them to within a point of the League Two play-off places.

Kee refused to take the credit for the three points, instead heaping praise on his team's defensive display.

He told the Burton Mail: "It was nice to score early on and and start, of course, but I think you could see how good of a team performance it was with our defending.

"We're keeping clean sheets and that's a massive thing. The back four were superb and they're always superb.

"I'd say we've got the best four or five centre-halves in the league with Stanno (Nathan Stanton) and G (Aaron Webster) on the bench who can play anywhere."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
