WILL Miller has hailed an "unbelievable team performance" from Burton Albion at Hillsborough as the Brewers put three past The Owls.

He said: "A big part of the way we have been playing away is when to press and when not to press. We do things as a unit and as a team so when it works like that it just proves all the hard work is paying off.

"It would have been nice if Lucas had put it away (the penalty) but Lucas was incredible, everybody was incredible. It was an unbelievable team performance and an incredible win away from home."

The youngster admitted that he had a 'lot of fun' in Burton Albion's 3-0 away victory at Sheffield Wednesday yesterday, and was full of praise for the hard work of the Brewers.

After a bright start to the game Albion were handed a penalty after just six minutes. Will Miller intercepted a loose pass out of defence and scampered into the penalty area. Lucas Akins stepped up but saw Joe Wildsmith drop to his left to save the spot kick.

"It was unbelievable from the first minute, the atmosphere is always great here (Hillsborough)," said Miller. "Getting the penalty was a good start then we carried it on, kept the pressure up and got a good result. I had a lot of fun, we put a shift in and a lot of hard work. We created a lot of chances and I really enjoyed the game."

Burton Albion have now won their last three away games, and have lost just once in their last five home and away. The Albion forward says his team need to try and emulate their away form at home.

He said: "I think our form away from home speaks for itself with three wins in a row now. We're playing really well and I think we just need to emulate that a bit more at home but as I said we're just really enjoying the games."

Tom Flanagan hadn't scored for five years prior to his opening goal at Reading late in December, but he scored his second in as many weeks when Naylor played the ball into the path of the full-back, who was bursting forwards and after riding a couple of challenges on the edge of the box and getting the luck of the bounce the defender slammed home the opening in this fixture.

On the goal, Will Miller said: "I was buzzing, everyone was buzzing. When he went through I had no doubt he was going to score so it was a great goal.

"Whenever you get a goal it's a boost but I thought throughout the game we defended really well and we put pressure on them all the time. The attitude and mentality was there throughout the game so once we missed the penalty I don't think anybody let their head drop. We kept it together, we kept pushing and we got the reward."
