BREWERS LOOK TO CELEBRATE 500TH LEAGUE GAME WITH A WIN AT PLYMOUTH

9 October 2020

THE Brewers will be hoping to mark the club’s 500th game in league football with a victory at Plymouth tomorrow.

It has been a remarkable period in the club’s history following promotion in 2009 for a side captained by current manager Jake Buxton.

Two promotions and two years in the Championship followed in those 499 games.

Buxton said: “It would be nice to mark that with a victory … and a clean sheet.

“I was part of the group that got the club out of non league at the time and it’s hard to believe how quickly that has gone. It’s been a great achievement for the football club and long may that continue.”

Buxton admits that a clean sheet would be a massive boost for his team tomorrow after conceding 12 in the last three games.

He said: “It’s important for the group and we know it’s set plays that have been hurting us.

“We have concentrated in training on heading and corners, getting your body between the goal and the ball and making sure you head it when it comes into the box and having the desire to make that first contact on set plays. We must stop letting the opposition back into the game with set plays against us.

“With personnel coming back who have done that job throughout their careers and have understood it, I hope the mistakes will stop.

“We have two important away games coming up at Plymouth and Bristol Rovers and a clean sheet mentality, a gang mentality of sticking together and working hard for the team, being hard to beat is important.”
