El Khayati looking for revenge against Fleetwood.

With the Albion looking to bounce back on Saturday against Fleetwood Town after last week’s loss to Walsall, El Khayati can feel a little revenge in his stomach despite not playing for the Brewers when Saturday’s opponents beat Burton at Wembley to gain promotion to League One a couple of years back.

“I heard from the boys that we lost the play off final two years ago against Fleetwood so it is going to be a tough game and hopefully a bit of revenge for us.

“I really don’t know how they are going to play, we have some tactics.

“The boys like Robbie Weir remember it well and it wasn’t a nice day for them but we are now in League One towards the top and they are towards the bottom, football is strange.”

So the Brewers have one of the best records in England with Hasselbaink carrying a win percentage of over 60%! Tim Sherwood once labelled his win percentage at Tottenham Hotspur as ‘second to none’ so what does that make Hasselbaink’s record?

Losses have only come against big teams in the league which some would call ‘the big boys’. Despite the defeats and the most recent one against Walsall at the time of writing, El Khayati insists the mood in the camp is still well and bright.

“Up until now, we have lost against big teams and we have reacted very well and the mood is good.

“Hopefully we will react again with three games in a week.

“We forget the defeats and try to be as positive as we can.” said the Dutchman.
