SCOTT Fraser says that the Brewers have already given an indication of the quality they possess and thinks that tightening things up defensively is a team responsibility.

The Scottish midfielder made his competitive debut for Albion against Rochdale on Saturday and was an integral part in a lot of his side’s attacking play.

The Brewers found themselves 2-0 down before half-time, but went on to dominate most of the game, forcing numerous saves out of Rochdale goalkeeper Josh Lillis.

Fraser thinks that Albion gave a taste of what they are capable of during the second-half, and says that there are plenty of potential for success, especially if they can tighten things up defensively as a team.

He said: “As a team, we need to be more aware at the back, not just the defenders because the manager is big on the defence starting from the front, for the front three and midfield three to make sure that we are pressing. It is a team effort and I am sure that we will get better.

“I think we have got to take (the second-half performance) as a positive. No disrespect to Rochdale, because they came to win the game, but I thought that we battered them. We created enough chances to win two matches, but it is up to us to score those chances.”

“I think that you have already seen how well we can play when we put our mind to it, and we need to take the positives after the first 20-25 minutes (of the first game)”
