LUCAS Akins was back in the Burton Albion team today as he was favoured over Nasser El Khayati on the left.

A goal after three minutes was enough for the Albion as they ran away 1-0 winners over Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium.

Akins said: "We managed to get an early goal from Naylor then we defended to our man excellently.

"It was always going to be tough to come here they play expansive football."

Three changes were made prior the the game. Out went Nasser El Khayati, Anthony O'Connor and Callum Reilly to be replaced with Lucas Akins, Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Robbie Weir.

"We made a few changes with the amount of games we have got coming up which sometimes works in your favour but sometimes not," said Akins.

He added: "We stuck to the game plan which we worked on in the week and we're very pleased to walk away with three valuable points after the set-back on Saturday against Shrewsbury.

"It's something we are starting to see more from this team and we will do it from now until the end of the season and everybody has got to be ready."
