JAKE Buxton says that the Brewers are fully focused on tomorrow’s game against Rochdale, and thinks that a result for the Brewers is key to keeping their momentum going.

Tomorrow's opponents beat Albion on the opening day of the season but have struggled for consistency this season. 

The Brewers are currently on a run of three games unbeaten, which Buxton feels is a good return from the festive period heading into tomorrow's game.

“I think that the Christmas period has been a good one for us, we have had some solid results. We have performed well at home and to have picked a first league clean sheet away from home at Bristol Rovers is a big plus going into what is an important period for us.

“If we can get a good result at Rochdale it could set us up for a couple of big games that are coming up for us.”

Buxton says that the team is determined to keep the season alive, and that the game against Rochdale is key to doing that.

He said: “We do not want to let the season fizzle out and we are in danger of that happening. This week is a big week for us, because we need to keep pushing for the top 10 and try to get in there as quickly as we can to keep the season alive. 

We played Rochdale in the first game of the season and they were bright. They have Ian Henderson, who runs all day, and Wilbraham, the big boy, so they are a threat.

“They are going through a difficult period, but there is no given right for us to get a clean sheet, we have to earn it. We have had that little bit more resilience in the past couple of weeks and we probably look a little bit more sound for that.”
