O'TOOLE WANTS BREWERS TO START FRESH UNBEATEN RUN

3 October 2019

BREWERS defender John-Joe O’Toole hopes his team can learn from the mistakes at Tranmere and pick up three points at MK Dons on Saturday (kick off 3pm).

The Brewers conceded two goals in injury time at Tranmere in their last League One game to see victory snatched from their grasp.

That ended a seven-game unbeaten run for Albion and now O’Toole wants to start another winning streak.

He said: “We addressed a few issues after the Tranmere game as it was a bit of a sucker punch. But  then, in the Bournemouth game, we were really solid, and it was a great team performance.

“As a group we are still learning to play with one another. We could easily be in the play-off positions, especially as we have two games in hand on most teams in the league.

“The Tranmere game was the result we were disappointed with the most, but we know what we have to do and are more than capable of doing it.

“That little bit of ruthlessness and cutting edge is what we need and the ability to see out games when we are under the cosh a little bit. It’s just managing the games we need to improve on.”

The Brewers go into the match after the Leasing.com defeat at home to Everton.

O’Toole said: “It was disappointing on Tuesday night. I thought after the Bournemouth game we could have taken that on, but it was a bit of a kick in the teeth. Maybe it was the kick up the backside we need to get three points on Saturday.”

But the defender knows that MK Dons have to be respected.

“They have a good set of players and it won’t be easy, but we won’t be worrying about them too much and I don’t see any reason we can’t win the game.”
