Lyness started Saturday's win at Fleetwood after on-loan Sunderland shot-stopper Jordan Pickford was recalled by the Premier League club.

His performance earned praise from Rowett who will now give the 22-year-old a run of matches to try and establish himself as the Brewers' number one.

"He is a young boy desperate for his chance and he did fantastically well," Rowett told BBC Radio Derby.

"It was an easy game to drop and spill things but he was assured and his kicking has improved a lot."

Lyness joined Burton from Kidderminster in July 2012 and made 18 appearances in all competitions last season.

Rowett signed teenager Mats Morch from Albion's Championship neighbours Derby on a one-month loan deal last week, and the young Norwegian was on the bench at Fleetwood providing cover for Lyness.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
