Sheffield United loanee Florent Cuvelier admits he was delighted with his debut for Burton Albion, after he fired them back to the top of League Two.

Cuvelier came off the bench to score the only goal of the game as the Brewers beat Hartlepool.

That win sent Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side back to the summit of their division and 22-year-old Cuvelier said: “I don’t think I could’ve had a better start at a new club.

“You get on the pitch, get a chance to impress and I’ve got a goal and three important points so it’s a great start.”

The young Belgian was later taken off after suffering a hamstring strain, but is hoping to be fit for this weekend’s home clash with Accrington.

“I have been training with the team for the last couple of days and have really enjoyed myself,” he said.

“They have all made me feel really welcome and I’m really happy to be here and can’t wait to get more goals and more victories, hopefully.”

Clough, who began his managerial career at Burton, said: “We know he’ll be looked after there. It’s ideal for him to get some game-time and get his fitness back.

“Flo did well for us when he came in and then levelled off a bit after getting an injury. It’s perfect for him as well because he lives 10 minutes away from there too.

“Obviously the football is the biggest thing but, even though it’s a minor consideration, if you can put the two things together, then perfect.”

Cuvelier made five appearances for United towards the end of last year after recovering from a serious knee injury before a muscular complaint stalled his progress.
