BEN Turner believes that Burton Albion were unlucky to suffer defeat in their FA Cup third-round tie with Birmingham City after the Brewers went down 1-0 at St. Andrew’s.

Burton dominated the first-half of the contest, with Lloyd Dyer looking a constant threat down the left. However, their best chance came just after the break when Turner headed powerfully at goal from a corner, only for Blues midfielder Craig Gardner to deny him with a goal-line clearance.

A second-half Sam Gallagher strike settled the tie, but Turner thinks that Burton deserved more for their efforts.

He said: “We are disappointed that we have not gone through, it is a shame for the travelling support, which was one of the strongest since I have been here. We played well, we have not dropped off in our performance for a number of weeks.

“We created more chances more chances than them, I thought that we had the better chances. We are Burton Albion, we cannot say that everywhere we go, so we will take positives, everyone is in one piece and we have the same mission in the league to be getting on with now.”
