Edwards: Getting back into form

28 February 2014

Brewers defender previews Accrington visit

Burton Albion defender Phil Edwards is looking forward to facing his former club Accrington Stanley and has urged the side to get back to winning ways.

Edwards made over 200 Stanley appearances in his time with the club, and is looking forward to seeing old team-mates.

"I always look forward to playing against Accrington. I played there for six or seven years and I enjoyed my time there and It will be good to see a couple of the lads back. It'll be an interesting game but hopefully we can come out on top," said Edwards.

Albion's form has dipped of late, but Edwards is backing his team to rediscover their form in what is likely to be a tight game.

"We need to get back to wining ways, we've struggled a bit of late and we haven't won since Morecambe away. They're fighting for points which makes the game difficult, but we're fighting for different reasons and hopefully we can just edge it and be victorious," Edwards said.

The Brewers have spent a lot of time on the road recently with three consecutive away trips, so Edwards is pleased to get back to home comforts with the visit of Stanley.

"It's good to be back. This past week has involved a lot of travelling and it's probably taken it's toll on the boys a little bit. The good thing is we only lost one game so hopefully we can take advantage of our home form and get back to winning ways," Edwards added.

Despite playing in defence, Edwards gained a reputation of a goalscorer when at Accrington, and admits it would be nice to score his third goal of the season tomorrow.

"When I was at Rochdale I should have scored at their place but headed it over the bar. I'll be looking to score but the main objective is to get back to keeping clean sheets, although if I can nick a goal and get us a win it would be better."
