MCFADZEAN: THERE'S A REAL BELIEF

19 April 2018

Defender Kyle McFadzean says it will be “game on” for the season if The Brewers can pick up a victory at Sunderland on Saturday.

Albion travel to the Stadium of Light this weekend five points from safety, with Bolton Wanderers to play after our trip to the North East before the final day game at Preston North End.

But defender McFadzean is fully focused on this weekend’s important fixture and is relishing the run-in following our 3-1 victory over Derby County at the Pirelli Stadium last week.

And the 31-year-old is targeting wins in all three of our final games to secure Championship survival.

"We’re relishing it now," said the centre-half.

"We never thought we were down - we thought it would be hard.

"But when you look at our fixtures and their fixtures, if we win Saturday, it’s game on.

"We can’t look past Saturday because we need to beat Sunderland - but Bolton won’t want to come here needing a result.

"Hopefully we can take it into the last game being a point above them and playing to stay in this league.

"Realistically I think we need maximum points to give us that real chance.

"Sometimes we’ve been better when we’ve had pressure on us. Obviously the home form hasn’t been very good but on Saturday, we probably didn’t play as well as we usually do but we won.

"To get that out of the way and get that win at home, hopefully we can go to Sunderland full of confidence and get a good win.”

And McFadzean insists his teammates are not lacking belief in the run-in.

"I think there’s a real belief in the lads," said the defender.

"Obviously we’ve got to take it a game at a time and Saturday is the first one. I think we must win that to put pressure on the other teams.

"There’s a belief that we have got a chance of staying up now.

"Obviously Saturday is a must-win game and if all the results go for us and we win, we’ll be going into Bolton’s game (knowing that) if we beat them, we go above them and it might go down to the last day, which we're hoping it does."
