GARY Rowett has backed new sign­ing Gary Alexan­der to in­spire Bur­ton’s pro­mo­tion push and claim a mem­o­rable hat-trick.

Alexan­der, 34, signed from Crawley on dead­line day and af­ter win­ning pro­mo­tion with the Red Devils and Brent­ford, Rowett has chal­lenged him to add an­other to his col­lec­tion.

“What you get with Gary is some­one who has been there and seen it,” said Rowett.

“He’s had two pro­mo­tions and knows what it takes to get out of this divi­sion. He’s been straight into the thick of it, giv­ing peo­ple around him a bit of en­cour­age­ment and in­struc­tion, not just as a player, but as a char­ac­ter.”
