KANE Hemmings grabbed his first competitive Burton Albion goal in Saturday’s 1-1 draw away at Bristol Rovers and believes that his side were by far the better outfit throughout the game.

Following the draw, the Burton-born striker expressed his delight at scoring his first goal for the club, adding that the Brewers were also happy to take a point on the road following a recent run of poor run results.

He said: “One mistake kind of let them in (Bristol Rovers opening goal), but I think for the majority of the game we were in my opinion, far the better team. Even when we went 1-0 down, we were dominant, and it was only a matter of time until we got back into the game.

“Obviously when they scored it got a bit tentative and we were hanging on a little bit, but I think we were the better team and I don’t think anyone here would have been surprised if we’d have nicked the game.

“I think the run of form that we’ve been on, were happy to take a point away and go into two home games now.”

Reflecting on his first goal in a Burton Albion shirt, Hemmings said: “It’s nice!

“When you’re there as a kid watching the games and stuff, you kind of want to be in that position and I’m buzzing to get that goal today.”

Hemmings also said that him and his teammates are now looking forward to the two home league games ahead, starting with tomorrow evening’s visit of Rochdale.

He said: “It’s two winnable games, at home, on our turf.

“We’ve played okay when we’ve been there (Pirelli Stadium), so the attitude has got to be to go and get six points.”
