MANAGER REACTION: SWINDON TOWN 4-2 BURTON ALBION

26 September 2020

A DISAPPOINTED Jake Buxton says Burton Albion will find solutions then look to move on quickly following our defeat at Swindon Town today.

Although Stephen Quinn and Lucas Akins both got on the scoresheet, Swindon ran out 4-2 winners at the County Ground as the Brewers suffered a second league defeat of the season.

Town went into a 3-0 lead in the first half before Quinn’s 25-yard strike got a goal back for the Brewers, but getting a result was always going to be an uphill battle once Johnny Smith made it 4-1 in the second half.

Akins’ close-range header made it 4-2 and it could have been 4-3 minutes later had the ball bounced off the post kinder from another Akins header, but ultimately Brewers manager Buxton was left disappointed by the team’s performance over 90 minutes.

“We’re obviously massively disappointed with the result, but the performance really disappoints me,” said Buxton.

“We started the game brightly and conceded a sloppy goal, which is tough to take.

“I’ve spoken with the boys and they know what we’ve not been good at - the quality of the ball, on the ball, was poor, without the ball we didn’t do our jobs.

“It’s the first time, other than 30 minutes at Fleetwood, that we’ve been a little bit disappointed with all of it.

“But we’ll move on quite quickly - we’ll speak about it on Monday and Tuesday regarding solutions and why we didn’t do things well.”

Buxton felt conceding that fourth goal, the first of the second half, was key in condemning the Brewers to a defeat.

“The fourth goal - if you don’t concede that you have a change to get something at the end,” Buxton added.

“They punished us for the mistakes we made - there’s only once in the game, for the fourth, that they’ve really opened us up for a goal.

“We’re disappointed, but we don’t dwell on it.”
