Deji Oshilaja’s brace guides Burton Albion to FA Cup fifth round

Deji Oshilaja scores a brace effort as Burton Albion on Sunday thrash Chippenham 6-1 to qualify for the English FA Cup fifth round.

Nigerian London born versatile defender was in the thick of the action from start to finish.

Another Nigerian Victor Adeboyejo was also on parade for Burton Albion and saw an early goal ruled out for offside, just before Johny Smith fired home the opener from Oshilaja’s pass.

Adeboyejo later headed another glorious chance over, and Oshilaja saw a fine header turned around the post by the flying Henry.

Burton got their second on the stroke of half time as Oshilaja raced along the touchline before beating his marker and firing home from an acute angle.

Victor Adeboyejo saw another goal ruled out for off side, just before  Bobby Kamwa made it 3-0 for the hosts, before Harry Parsons pulled one back for the Bluebirds.

Sam Winnall added a late brace, but there was still time for Oshilaja to slot in the sixth from the edge of the area as Burton took their place in the third-round draw.
