CHARLES Vernam believes last night’s draw with Sunderland was a good point leading into Saturday’s home fixture against Crewe Alexandra.

The forward got his second goal in as many games at the Stadium of Light and said that his side were overall satisfied with a point. “I think it’s a really positive point”, said Vernam.

“We all come off frustrated because we were leading in the game up until the closing stages, but it’s something that we would have taken before hand.

“The manager spoke to us after the game and said that it’s a great point. We were away from home and we’ve come to a side that want to be right up there this season. To come away from the last two games with four points is really positive.

“We used the three points at home to Charlton and coming here it was important that we got something.”

Vernam believes that he is now back to full fitness following a lengthy injury and is happy to get consecutive league goals for the Brewers. He said: “As a striker you need goals for confidence and if I wasn’t confident then I don’t think that I would have been where I was tonight, in that position following in.

“It’s important that I keep that going now. I need to provide goals and assists for the team as it’s my job.”

He now wants his teammates to take the confidence from the last two performances into this weekend’s home game against Crewe at the Pirelli Stadium. He said: “We’ll take the result into Saturday and we’ll try and build on the momentum.

“Crewe are a very good footballing side – I played against them last season with Grimsby. They were very good on the ball and like to play possession football.

“We need to make the game our sort of game with home advantage and really mix it up so that we come away with a positive result again.”
