BREWERS goalkeeper Stephen Bywater has said that Burton Albion is the most “tight knit club," he has ever been at.

Reflecting after a few days in Spain with his teammates during the international break he said: “I think it was important that we were all together after the two back-to-back defeats. It gives us a good chance to get to know the new lads, work out their personalities and characters, find out what they are like outside of a working environment.

“We feel stronger as a team after these trips, last season for example we went on a trip the week before Huddersfield away and we come away with all three points. To me it felt like winning the World Cup.”

Bywater believes the team spirit and quality within the squad is much better than last season despite a strong team spirit last year, he said: “We’ve got a much better spirit within the squad this year and have better quality, the togetherness within the squad is even better, the signings we make realise they’ve got to be a part of the group. We have to fight for each other.

"This is the best club I have been at it is a very tight knit club, you can't buy it. It's hard to get a group of lads who want to win for each other. Everyone knows each other here, from the ticket office, the kitchen staff, the media everyone says hello and knows each other and that shows how together the club is."
