BREWERS manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says he was really pleased with his sides win and performance despite bowing out of the Papa John’s Trophy this evening at Wycombe Wanderers.
Albion arrived at Adams Park already knowing that they couldn’t progress any further in the competition, following two earlier defeats at the Pirelli Stadium to MK Dons and Aston Villa Under 21s earlier in the season.
The sides went in level at half time despite the Brewers having the majority of first half chances and possession, but Hasselbaink's side stepped up a gear and took the lead early in the second half through striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway as he scored his first in a hat-trick of headers and open his goalscoring account for the club.
On Holloway, the Brewers manager said: “He’s had a difficult time since joining the club, including a difficult time from me because we’ve wanted more from him.
"We know what he can do and he’s deserved what he got tonight, so it will be hopefully good for his confidence moving forward.”
Overall Hasselbaink said was really please with the workout and got exactly what he hoped out of the game.
“I can’t ask much more of the team that played tonight. A lot of players needed game time that played – the squad is big and we tried some people in different positions and they did well.
“I’m very happy with the performance and how the game went today. The game gave me a chance to try a few things with certain players and I was pleased with how they responded.”
