MATTY Palmer says the Brewers knew Millwall would be a tough place to come but worked hard to get a vital 1-0 win.
The midfielder returned to the starting line-up and was instrumental in helping Albion earn a first away win of the season.
He said: “It’s a very difficult place to come and the atmosphere is well known but I thought we dealt with it well. We rode it out and got a good win.
“We are all really happy as we have been on a bad run. We have not been scoring and have been conceding but today we have scored and kept a clean sheet. It’s a good day all round and a positive way to go into the international break.
“I got an opportunity today so hopefully I can stay in the team for Sheffield United. I tried to put my stamp on the team and I thought I picked out some good balls and I thought as a midfield three we did really well. The back four were really good and Marvin Sordell was great up front so it was an all round team performance.”
It was Palmer who set up Sordell for the only goal.
He said: “I was going to cross it but it wasn’t right so I took another touch and everyone changed position. They have a 6ft 5ins centre half against Marvin so I knew he needed it at his feet and he did the rest.
“For whatever reason the fans here were giving him some stick but he scores goals and he has won us the game today.
“The luck recently has been against us, but we played well enough for that to turn for us today.”
