ANDY Garner says the Brewers will benefit from an extra day’s rest and will be looking forward to taking on Charlton at the Valley tomorrow night (kick off 7.45pm).
The squad had a rare Saturday off after beating Coventry 2-1 on Friday night at the Ricoh Arena and remain unbeaten away from home in 2019.
Garner said: “The players will have an extra day’s rest, then will be in on Monday like we usually do to train and travel down there. We will do a bit Tuesday morning and we will get ready for Charlton on Tuesday night.”
Charlton have only lost twice this season at the Valley and lie in fifth spot after beating fellow promotion-chasers Portsmouth at home on Saturday.
Garner said: “We are definitely looking forward to it. It’s another big club and another big crowd but we are enjoying playing away at the moment and long may that continue.”
The Brewers first team coach was delighted with the win at the Ricoh Arena and only wants Albion to be more clinical in the final third.
He said: “We should have had more efforts on target with the opportunities we had.”
But he was pleased with the way the Brewers players stuck to their jobs despite playing ten men.
“They don’t need to be out of place,” he says. “We were telling the back four ‘just stay in your positions, do your jobs, you don’t need to go anywhere’. Especially when you are 2-1 up. At times in the past we have conceded goals by going silly, getting out of position and being caught out.”
