ALBION goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin says that the mood in the Brewers camp is good - despite defeats in their opening two league games.

Albion were beaten late on by a stoppage time winner from Tammy Abraham for Bristol City but McLaughlin doesn’t think that the squad will allow their heads to drop.

“It’s (the mood) mixed at the moment obviously - we are well aware of the disappointing aspect of the performances in that we have conceded goals and have lost the two league games but we are taking all of the positives. We are a team who know not to get too high when we win or too low when we lose.

“We are taking all of the positives and remaining confident - we knew it was going to be difficult and that we wouldn’t have it all our own way like we have the last two years. Even then it was difficult, so we aren’t letting it affect us too much and it will take a lot more than that to break the spirit that we have.”

The Brewers came up against one of the toughest strike partnerships in The Championship; with last season’s 20-goal man Jonathan Kodjia pairing up with Chelsea’s young loanee Tammy Abraham but McLaughlin feels Burton handled them well, as is adamant that the squad know the difficulty of the division.

“I think we handled them very well we haven’t been troubled that much by the teams that we have played so far, but are coming up against very good strikers every week and that is going to continue.

“It isn’t going to get any easier, every time the team sheets come in there are going to be big names on there every week now. We are very proud of the fact that we have got to that stage.”

The Brewers now go on to face Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night, hoping to secure their first points of the Championship season.
