McCRORY HAS HIS FINGERS CROSSED HOPING TO AVOID THE PLAY-OFFS

15 April 2015

Form is what it all comes down to in the nitty gritty end of the season.

In the past eight games, the Brewers have won six and drew two games. Since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has arrived at the Pirelli Stadium, the Brewers have only been defeated three times…and he joined in November! 

With results and form alike, it is hard to think of anything else but promotion if you are an Albion fan and Damien McCrory can’t deny that current form is promotion form.

“Obviously it is a very important time of the season and luckily enough we have managed to pull a lot of results our way.

“Obviously six wins a two draws is promotion form really so I’m glad we are doing that at the right time and I hope we can carry on to Wednesday.”

Experience is something that Burton Albion haven’t lacked this season. Scott Shearer joined in January on loan from Crewe who has racked up six promotions in his last seven seasons. 32-year-old Shane Cansdell-Sherriff has picked up over 400 career appearances, making over 50 of those appearances for the Brewers in the past two seasons.

Damien McCory won the League 2 play-off final for Dagenham and Redbridge against Rotherham United back in 2009/10 season.

“I won the play-off final for Dagenham about three seasons ago.”

Last season, the Brewers managed the reach the play-off final at Wembley against Fleetwood Town after an aggregate victory over Southend United but they fell at the final hurdle. The Irish left-back has his fingers crossed this season hoping to avoid the lottery of the play-offs.

“I have been in the play-offs since joining Burton as well so fingers crossed we won’t be involved in play-offs this season.”
