BREWERS keeper Jon McLaughlin is eager to get back to action after a three-week break.

Albion take on Bury and Wigan in consecutive away games after a short interruption to their League One progress.

McLaughlin says: “With The FA Cup coming along and the Gaffer making a  few changes, then the Millwall game being postponed, it has been a long time between games for me but it’s nice to get that bit of a rest at this stage in the season when it has been hectic.

“It’s a chance to clear your head and assess where you are and get ready to go again. We have made the most of this break, not seen it as a holiday and we are all itching to get back to work.

“You never like sitting on the bench, you feel a bit helpless watching. But when you have someone like Remi (Matthews) stepping in you never worry and it’s great for him to be able to be part of it as well. Just from a purely selfish point of view you always want to be out there with the lads playing week in week out.

“Every game Remi has played, he’s done well and that’s exactly what he came here to do and he’s always pushing me and is desperate to play.”

Watching the Peterborough game from the sidelines, McLaughlin says he  believes the 3-0 victory flattered Peterborough.

He says: “Like the Fleetwood game, I thought the result was a little harsh on the performance. In both of those games, the first half performance was good and controlled. Alarm bells weren’t going off at half time.

“You will get results like that over a season. We are not a team that batters teams to death when we are winning games. All of our games are tight affairs and when you play teams like Peterborough with talented players in their squad and a new manger to impress, they are always difficult games.

“We are disappointed when results like that come but we move on quickly. After Fleetwood, it was three clean sheets so we show that those results are blips. We will go again from this and push on.”
