JAMIE Allen gave the Brewers a flying start with a goal in 57 seconds to set up a 2-1 win at Barnsley and the midfielder says he knew it was in from the moment he hit it.

He said: "That goal has been coming. I have been getting closer and closer and finally tonight I have put it in the back of the net and I'm delighted to get off the mark.

"I have been scoring quite a few in training and I just needed to put that into games and I'm glad that I have done that today.

"It felt like it was going in. As soon as I hit it, I thought it had a good chance of going in. It was a good start for us and we needed that start.

"The last few perforamnces we have started off well but haven't got that goal. The first ten minutes was what we have been working on and we wanted to get in their faces and we did that tonight."

The second goal was an equally good effort from Jacob Davenport.

Allen said: "He has been practising those free kicks in training and it was a great strike.

"This has been coming. We have been playing well enough to win games but haven't been scoring. Tonight we won it in the first half and we just have to keep playing like that for the rest of the season.

"The last few performances have given us confidence and now, hopefully, with the win we can bounce on to Satuday and do the same thing."
