LLOYD Dyer believes that Burton Albion’s second season in the Championship will be even harder than the first.

After signing a new one-year deal with the Brewers the player said: “It’s going to be harder but I see no reason why we can’t do it again. There have been games this year where we have been well on top and we have to take that into next season and be more consistent.

“The majority of the squad have been offered new contracts and hopefully we can add a few more and be good again."

Dyer has played a key role for the Brewers as a wing back since joining last summer.

He said: “I hadn’t played wing back since I was 19 or 20 at West Brom. When I first came I didn’t realise we would play like that but it worked so we carried on with it."

Dyer’s now looking forward to a well-earned break before reporting back for pre-season.

He said: “The Championship is a tough league and physically and mentally it drains you. The key is sticking together and team spirit.

“I love my family time as well. Nothing for me beats doing the school run – that makes me happy.  That makes me play better football and I will be raring to go next season.

“I know that in this league I’m as quick and as fit as anyone. I’m going to be 35 this year but that means nothing and anyone who has watched the games and worked with me knows that I’m in good shape.”
