ACADEMY VERDICT: SCUNTHORPE

14 March 2018

BURTON Albion under 18s drew 2-2 with Scunthorpe United on Tuesday.

The young Brewers have lost just once in five Youth Alliance games, as Reece Hutchinson and Regan Ganley scored to secure a point against the Irons, and are due to play again when hosting Notts County on Friday afternoon. 

Rose says that the teams was disappointed not to have won the game, but thinks that that attitude shows just how high the level of expectation is among the squad and coaching staff. 
 
He said: “It was a mixed performance. There were some really good aspects but we are disappointed with the two goals that we conceded. The first one comes from a really well rehearsed set-piece that caught us out and there was an individual error for the second goal. 
 
“As always, the lads have applied themselves and worked hard. They managed to get themselves back into the game twice which is pleasing. We have hit the bar twice and hit the post in the second-half but not managed to score a winner.
 
“I think that we dominated after changing our shape, so we are disappointed not to have won, but Scunthorpe played well, worked hard and gave a good account of themselves.” 
 
“We are not focusing too much on the run of the team, as that can make you reluctant to rotate the players and involve u16s, but we are focusing on the individual performances of the players.
 
“We always go into every game trying to win. It is a good place to be in as players and staff if we can be disappointed that we haven't won a game.”
