Neil Warnock believes Burton Albion’s success does not get acknowledged as much as it should.

The Cardiff City manager, who managed the Brewers between 1981 and 1986, saw his side beat Burton in their opening game of the season thanks to a late Kenneth Zohore goal.

After the game, Warnock reflected on how far Burton Albion have come since his time at the club and believes that the Brewers deserve more credit for their success in recent years. He also praised Burton Chairman Ben Robinson.

He said: “I don’t think that it [Burton’s rise to the Championship] gets enough of a mention really.

“I was talking to a guy who was here when I was here and he was saying that my first game [at Burton] was in the Bass Charity Vase, we had a crowd of about 800 at the brewery, we got a free drink after and we were playing Derby County’s ‘third team’, it puts this into perspective, really.

“It is just incredible, I am so pleased for Ben [Robinson]because he is a super Chairman, a super owner and all of his family, you could not wish it on anybody better than him and I am delighted.

“Obviously, I want them [Burton] to win every game now, but he [Ben Robinson] supports Nigel Clough, Nigel knows that it’s limited but they don’t moan about it, they just get on with it and make sure that they give a game against anybody, the bigger sides won’t like coming here.”
