LUCAS Akins was quick to praise the efforts of his Brewers teammates after scoring the winning goal against Swindon from the penalty spot.

He said: “I am obviously pleased to score the winner but at the same time it could have easily been a draw-saving goal, or even a consolation, if it wasn’t for the hard work of our defence and goalkeeper.

"Jon made two world class saves. I was warming up at the time of the second one. I immediately thought 'goal' but then I saw a hand come from nowhere. That’s what he is capable of and for me he is the best keeper in this league and we are very lucky to have him."

"The back four as well, and Robbie Weir, were excellent and worked very hard against a very good Swindon side and we thoroughly deserved our clean sheet in the end.” 

Akins was also pleased that the side managed to shut out Swindon after conceding three last time out against Doncaster.

“I think we were back to our solid best today after a poor defensive display against Doncaster.

"The manager told us that if we are to make mistakes, it’s best to do it one game and get them out of our system so to speak and that’s what we did and still managed to grab a point.”
