SCOTT Fraser says it is up to the Brewers team as a whole to chip in with the goals, rather than relying on a few players to find the net.
Having started the season with plenty of goal action at both ends of the pitch, the Brewers have tightened up recently, with opposition finding goals hard to come by against Nigel Clough’s side.
However, Albion have struggled to put away their own chances of late, with plenty of good performances not being reflected in the score line.
Fraser admits that the Brewers haven’t been finding the net as freely as they did earlier in the campaign, but he believes hard work and sharing the goalscoring burden around the squad will be the key to ending their drought.
He said: “At the start of the season, it was probably roles reversed in that we were scoring goals but we were always conceding. It is just about us as attacking player working hard in training and hoping that it will click again, I am sure it will.
“Obviously we can’t just rely on one or two players to score the goals, it’s a team game. Whether it is a set-piece and one of the centre-halves heads it in, we cannot rely on just one or two or two players.
“I think we have spread the goals around the team quite evenly this season. Boycey is on 10 and the rest of us are on six or five. We need to keep working hard in training and it will click again.”
Since moving down from Scotland to join the Brewers in the summer, Fraser has found the net seven times.
The midfielder is delighted to have added goals to his game, but says he never doubted that he could adapt to English football.
“When I came down (from Scotland), one thing that I wanted to add to my game was goals. I probably should have three or four more, I started the season quite slowly in terms of my goals. I had chances in the first four or five games and it just didn’t happen to me.
“Since then, I have managed to get a few. Other than Plymouth and Portsmouth, I have featured in every league game, that’s a positive for me, making sure that I stay fit and play well enough that the gaffer keeps picking me.
“I am obviously doing something right, I never had any doubt in the ability I had to come and play down here (in England). It was just adapting and working on certain things that the coaches have helped me with. I feel like I have improved from that.”
