Weir takes point after tough week

Albion Midfielder happy to take another point away from home

Burton Albion midfielder Robbie Weir was pleased to be back in the starting line-up away at Bury, and has praised the hard work of his teammates after a busy week.

“Of course it was nice to be back, it was a credit to the lads the way they went about today’s game. We had a long trip down to Bournemouth and we’ve had a hard week of training so the way we performed today was a credit to the lads,” said Weir.

Weir was rested for the midweek cup tie at AFC Bournemouth, and admits it could be a positive thing.

“It was probably a good thing to be rested [in midweek] as it gives me a little breather and I can kick on now,” Weir said.

Being back in the line-up today, Weir says there were chances to win the game, but will accept travelling home from an away match with a point.

“It was a very open game. 

"They were attacking and we were attacking. 

"There were gaps everywhere and credit to Bury, they tried to play some decent football, playing from the back which can be risky. We did well today and it’s another clean sheet away from home.

“On another day, Billy [Kee] would have scored the harder, but we created three or four chances in the first-half and the game could have been over. Away from home we’ll take another point and we’ll move on to Fleetwood next week,” said Weir.

Weir also had praise for the back four, who gave the team a platform to build on by recording their successive clean sheet away in the league.

“If you keep a clean sheet, you have half a chance of winning the game, so it’s very important to keep the clean sheets that we have. Credit goes to the back four who are keeping the clean sheets,” added the midfielder.
