NEW signing Kyle McFadzean says that he expects the Brewers to prosper in the Championship and avoid a relegation battle.
After agreeing a three-year deal with the Brewers, McFadzean, who was in the MK Dons side that spent a year in the Championship before returning to League One, said: “With the experience from last year, I don’t want to get relegated again. I will be determined to make sure we don’t.”
McFadzean knows what the Brewers can expect in the second tier of English football.
He said: “It’s more physically demanding, the players are a lot more clinical – if they get a chance they will put it away. But I’m sure we will be alright. The Gaffer says we will have hard working players and that’s what we need.”
McFadzean made 93 appearances and scored four goals during a two-year stay at Stadium MK, after arriving from Crawley Town in the summer of 2014.
Kyle’s brother Callum has had loan spells at the Pirelli and recommended the Brewers.
“I spoke to my brother about this place and he had so many good things to say about it,” says McFadzean. “It was an easy decision.”
The 29-year-old has made his name as a central defender. So what can Albion fans expect from him?
“I’m quite aggressive. I like to play football how you are meant to play it but if you have to get stuck in I’m willing to get stuck in. I give 110 per cent every game.
“The club has good defenders already – obviously they had a great defence last year which helped them get promoted. That’s what you need, a solid defence because obviously if you don’t concede too many goals then you can nick 1-0 wins and that will be good for us.”
