BEN Turner believes that Joe Sbarra is one of the most exciting prospects at Burton Albion, and the defender hopes that the youngster can continue to showcase his talents this season.

Sbarra, a graduate of the Burton Albion Academy, made his Championship debut for the club during the final game of last season, against Reading. The midfielder has been a regular in the matchday squad this season and has started three times in all competitions.

The youngster has three assists in all competitions, with his first Championship assist coming against Brentford, when he set-up Turner to equalise at Griffin Park. Turner thinks that Sbarra has a lot of potential, and can be a creative player for Burton.

“(He brings) technical ability, really. He is one of those kids that has got the world at his feet, in terms of his ability. He is not the biggest lad, he knows that, he works hard on the strength side of the game.

“He is very fit, he can get up and down the pitch and he can beat a man, he has good feet. Joe is one of the standout young players at the club, and it can only benefit him to be getting minutes on the pitch.

“He helped me to score a goal earlier in the season (against Brentford), that is the kind of player he is. He can create goals and pop up with a few himself.”
