TOMAS Egert says that the thought of playing in big games does not daunt him due to his inclusion in Europa League qualification as a teenager.

The Czech defender, who joined the Brewers earlier this month, has featured in the Czech top-flight and second division. Egert was also part of a squad in the Europa League qualifying rounds, while on-loan at Slovakian side Spartak Trnava.

The 23-year-old says that being a professional footballer since the age of 18 has prepared him for playing in the Championship with Burton Albion and he does not think he will be overawed by the level of football. 

He said: “I was a professional player in the Czech Republic, so this is nothing new for me and I am looking forward to winning as many matches as we can before the end of the season.

"I have played in the Czech Republic top division and I have played in the second division. It is a different type of play. Everybody knows that English football is more physical.

"When I was 18, I was on-loan in Slovakia when we played in Europa League qualification, so I was part of some big matches when I was young, that is nothing new for me.

“I think this level is comfortable for me.”
