McGurk's relief at goal

1 February 2014

Striker pleased to be back on score sheet

Striker Adam McGurk expressed his relief at scoring his first goal since November after clinching the equaliser against Exeter City in the 1-1 draw at the Pirelli Stadium.

McGurk’s last goal for Burton came in the 1-0 win against Exeter’s Devon rivals Plymouth Argyle at Home Park and the Brewers forward is hoping to now go on a scoring run.

“It is more of a relief that I have broken my duck.

“It has been a while since I have scored and it has been very frustrating.

“I haven’t had many real clear-cut chances to score but and the point we’ve earned today could be a good point come the end of the season.

“I want to get a little run going in the next couple of games,” he explained.

The forward backed the Albion squad’s character after they again came from behind to gain a result in testing conditions.

“We’ve showed that a couple of times this season (coming from behind), we’ve got character in the team.

“Obviously it is always disappointing to go 1-0 down but today the condition weren’t great for the way we want to play when we run and get the ball into the front men quickly.”

Much was made of last week’s weather conditions and the theme continued this weekend as driving wind and rain caused problems for both sides looking to play football.

“The wind was swirling everywhere and the pitch was pretty bobbly and it was a hard day.

“It was sort of catch-22 because of the condition of the pitch it was probably better being in the air but the wind was that bad that it was swinging everywhere.

“They probably played the conditions better than we did but I suppose that is what you’re going to get this time of the year,” he added.
