LUCAS Akins believes that support from Burton Albion fans will be crucial in the Brewers turning around their poor home form, and he is desperate to give them something to get excited about.
Sunderland became the sixth consecutive team to beat Burton at the Pirelli Stadium this season, with goals from James Vaughan and George Honeyman securing a 2-0 win for the Black Cats.
Akins, who has been with the Brewers through their rise from League Two, admits that the side’s current run of results at home is disappointing, but the 28-year-old wants the Pirelli Stadium faithful to stick by the team, as he feels their support will be crucial in arresting their poor form.
He said: "It's very disappointing at this moment in time.
"It's very strange, because in my time here, I'm used to winning games. I enjoy playing here, we just need to give the fans something to cheer about at the moment, because they are coming along and support us and, at the moment, we just can't seem to get that win.
"Hopefully, if they stick with us, we will turn a corner, and hopefully this past run of results can be a distant memory very soon and we can get back on the road of winning again and making this place a very tough place to come."
