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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
