DEJI Oshilaja says Burton Albion will continue to work hard following last weekend's defeat and ahead of tomorrow's game at home to Portsmouth.

The Brewers found themselves 2-0 down against Lincoln City on Saturday, before pulling a goal back through Conor Shaughnessy late on.

Lincoln goalkeeper Joshua Griffiths made a series of saves to deny Albion a share of the points in the dying embers of the game - including one acrobatic stop from Harry Chapman's curled effort.

“Everyone is still going to work hard, we are creating chances and unfortunately we didn’t have a rub of the green on Saturday," said Oshilaja.

“The harder we work and the more we put it in, I’m sure we will fix it and put things right.

“Their keeper made some great saves and the scramble in the box at the end he pulled off some more good stops.

"It’s part of the game, when both teams are going for it and both teams are trying to win it’s going to be end-to-end, unfortunately we didn’t get the rub of the green like I said.

“The harder we work, the results will come so nobody is panicking just yet.”

Oshilaja returned to the side following a spell on the side lines after picking up an injury in the Brewers' Carabao Cup tie against Oxford - and the former Charlton Athletic man admitted it was good to finally get back out on the pitch.

“It felt like a long time," said Oshilaja. "It’s hard to get back fit but the more games I play the fitter I will get.

"After a good win first game of the season, to get injured like that afterwards, which was kind of a freak injury was annoying.

“If the manager needs me to play then I am ready, I have worked hard to get back fit and I am feeling stronger and sharper.”
