COLLINS SAYS BREWERS CAN BEAT MIDDLESBROUGH

17 December 2018

BRAD Collins says the Brewers aren't satisfied with just getting to the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup for the first time in the club's history.

Albion are in uncharted territory as they travel to Middlsbrough tomorrow but the keeper on-loan from Chelsea says his team aren't just in the last eight to make the numbers up.

"We want to go there to win. If we win this game we are in the semis against the big boys over two legs and that would be fanatstic for the club.

"This is a big, big game and we want to win no doubt about it. We are going there to fight and do our best."

Collins has come back from injury to reclaim the goalkeeper's jersey in Nigel Clough's team but his loan spell is up in January.

"I want to stay," he said. "There are talks going on right now with Chelsea so hopefully that can get over the line sooner rather than later and I can stay here.

"I'm enjoying playing and having a run in the team. We have been up and down, we have lost a few, won a few and been very on and off. We are trying to find consistency."

Collins had the thankless task of standing in the driving, freezing rain and gale force winds at Fleetwood on Saturday.

He said: "It was very tough. If you watched the game you could see you couldn't pay football, it was just a 90-minute battle and it was always going to be down to one mistake and decision.

"We lost 1-0 because of the penalty and we now have to pick ourselves up and go again tomorrow because that's football."
