STRIKER Kane Hemmings says the Brewers will learn their lessons and move on from the 1-1 draw away at Wimbledon on Saturday.

The Brewers take on Aston Villa U21s tomorrow evening (7pm kick-off) following that draw in London on Saturday.

Hemmings put Albion into the lead with an assured finish mid-way through the second half before Wimbledon snatched a last-gasp equaliser to deny the Brewers a win on the road.

“I think it was a bit of a scrap for 90 minutes, but from our point of view I think once we went 1-0 up it’s a game we want to try and see out," said Hemmings.

“We are disappointed in that regard, but we will learn from it and move on.

“It wasn’t easy conditions to play in, but I don’t think that’s an excuse that we can use. It was the same for both sides and we should have seen the game out.”

Hemmings’ second half strike was his second goal of the season after coming off the bench just six minutes prior to the goal.

And while Hemmings, our top scorer last season, admitted it was nice to get on the scoresheet on a personal level, he could not help but feel disappointed that it wasn’t the winner.

“Whenever you score it’s a nice touch, but like I said, I was hoping it was going to be the winner but it wasn’t to be," said Hemmings.

“It’s always good to contribute but overall it’s disappointing that we haven’t come away with the three points."

With the Brewers in Papa John’s Trophy action on Tuesday night, Hemmings said he expects a totally different test when a youthful Villa side come to the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow.

“I know they have a few good players and it will be a completely different test to what it was out there against Wimbledon," added Hemmings.

“We are going to get back, rest and recover and go again against Villa.”
