BREWERS midfielder Robbie Weir praised his Burton Albion teammates for keeping a clean sheet against Walsall.

He said: “We knew it would be important to keep a clean sheet, especially after what happened in Southend on Monday night. We kept a good clean sheet, we knew that they would try and play balls in behind us so it was important to stop them from playing.

"We didn’t concede and I felt the draw on the day was a fair result. We know that they are bound to be up there come the end of the season, they are a good footballing side. Our defensive record is something we pride ourselves on as a side - it’s a credit to not only our defence but the whole side.”

Weir was also quick to praise new team-mate Hamza Choudhury, who was brought off the bench for his first professional game against the Saddlers after signing hours before kick off. 

“I felt the young lad did very well today. He looked tidy on the ball. Nobody knew of him coming in today. I had spoken to Jacob Blyth about him and he said good things. I look forward to training with him and getting to know him and his game more in the coming weeks.”
