Jacques Maghoma

Jacques Maghoma insists automatic promotion is a realistic target for Burton Albion this season.

Maghoma's 10th goal of the campaign against helped the Brewers climb to third in League Two, nine points behind leaders Gillingham.

Only forward Calvin Zola has scored more goals than Maghoma for Burton this term, with the midfielder doubling his previous best tally.

"I still have a target that I won't say," Maghoma told BBC Radio Derby.

"More goals will help us push for automatic, or keep us in or around the play-offs.

"I'm just going to keep plugging away."

Maghoma's equaliser earned the Brewers their first point on the road in five games dating back to December.

"Away from home that is the kind of performance that we need to put in," Maghoma added.

"For a start, we didn't lose and now it is a great carrot to go away to Wimbledon on Saturday to try get all three points and go up the table."
