BORTHWICK-JACKSON: WE'RE DISAPPOINTED WITH A POINT

28 August 2021

CAMERON Borthwick-Jackson says the vibe around the dressing room is one of disappointment despite Burton Albion coming from behind to secure a point against Cheltenham at the Pirelli Stadium.

The visitors took the lead through Callum Wright before a header from Lucas Akins, getting onto the end of a fine cross from Jonny Smith, drew the Brewers level midway through the second-half.

“A draw is probably a fair result, but the vibe around the dressing room is that we’re disappointed and I think that shows the character of the boys and what we are aiming to do this season," said Borthwick-Jackson.

“We have had a lot of bad luck at the moment with injuries, but the boys have come in and they know they have to do their job.

"We are close to getting a few back and that will be a boost but we have to carry on and get back fit as soon as possible.”

Albion’s injury woes were added to as Michael Mancienne had to be substituted early in the first half, with Borthwick-Jackson partnering Bryn Morris in the middle of the park from there.

The former Oldham Athletic man has not often played in central midfield in his senior career but has acquitted himself well.

“I’ve played in central midfield before, not in my professional career but I know the basics of the role," said Borthwick-Jackson.

"I think I am good enough on the ball to play that role and the manager said that he has put the trust in me to play that role.

“For the time being, I'll play this role for as long as the manager wants me in there and I’ll try my best to try and help out the team."
