MIDFIELDER Jacob Davenport says that Burton Albion's defeat to Brentford has hurt the players, but they will be looking to put it right against Bristol City.

The 19-year-old, on loan from Manchester City, played the full-90 minutes as the Brewers were beaten 2-0 by a second-half own-goal from Kyle McFadzean and a strike from Ollie Watkins.

Davenport admits that the defeat was a hard one to take, but hopes that Saturday’s clash with Bristol City will give the Brewers a chance to get back on track.

“Everyone is hurting. A defeat is always hard to take, especially at home. Defeat hurts us, but we will keep working together and hopefully get the three points on Saturday.

“We are always looking to get forward and make forward runs, get the ball out wide and link up with crosses. Today, it didn’t quite work, we had opportunities in the final third, but at the minute we are not getting anything from those sorts of balls. Hopefully it will come soon.”
