BURTON Albion need to take more of the chances that they are creating and learn to win when they don’t play well away from home, according to defender Kyle McFadzean.

The Brewers created a number of good opportunities in their 0-0 draw at home to Barnsley, however they were unable to find the net due, in part, to a string of fine saves from Tykes goalkeeper Adam Davies.

The result made it four home games unbeaten for Burton, but they are yet to win away from home this season. 

McFadzean says that Burton are playing well, but need to be more clinical in front of goal, and that they need to get better at grinding out results when chances are harder to come by, especially away from home.

“We need to take them (chances), we can’t keep coming away from every match saying that we have played well away nearly all season. I would rather play rubbish and win. We need the points, it is all about winning so if we can have a bad performance and get a win then we will take that.

“We have been playing well away from home, but we will keep going and, like the Gaffer says, we are a good group of players and we work hard, we want to win so I am sure it will come sooner rather than later.” 

The Brewers’ next test is an away trip to the Madjeski Stadium on November 19, after the international break, where they will take on Reading, hoping to gain their maiden away win in the Championship.
