DEFENDER TARGETS SIX POINTS FROM DOUBLE HEADER OF HOME GAMES

14 April 2016

BREWERS defender Tom Flanagan says that Albion will be going after all six points in the home fixtures against Barnsley and Wigan.

Nigel Clough's team face play-off chasing Barnsley on Saturday and league leaders Wigan on Tuesday.
 
Flanagan says: “At this stage of the season we have gone past the point of looking at the fixtures and saying maybe Wigan are a big club and we’ll take point. We have worked hard to get where we are in the league and we are not going to show anyone too much respect. We know we can beat anyone.
 
“We want six points from these two games. We are close to the finishing line and getting six points will put us much closer to getting over that line. It would also be a statement of intent if we can go out and win these games.
 
“We won’t be thinking about the Wigan game yet – It will be all about Barnsley and getting those three points and then we move on and look for the next three points.”
 
Flanagan says that at the moment he’s not looking at the league table just concentrating on the Brewers.
 
“If ever it gets to a stage when it’s out of our hands then we will worry about other people’s results but we have nothing to worry about now. If everyone wins their games and we win ours they can’t catch us.
 
“We want to win the title if possible but there is no ill thoughts about finishing second. You end up in the same league next season. At the end of the season going up is what matters. The end game is the Championship. We just need to get there and get it done."
