Burton Albion have suffered a bitter blow after their manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink left the club to become the new boss of Queen's Park Rangers.

The 43-year-old Dutchman only joined the Brewers just over a year ago and enjoyed a successful time at the Pirelli Stadium, during which Burton were promoted from League Two.

Jimmy's reign at Burton Albion:

Hasselbaink said leaving wasn't an easy decision, but that the QPR job was an opportunity he couldn't turn down.

He leaves Burton in a very healthy position for his successor - they are currently two points clear at the top of League One.

Burton's next fixture is away at Gillingham in the league on 12th December.
