MANAGER PREVIEW - ACCRINGTON STANLEY (A)

14 April 2022

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says he expects a tough game against Accrington Stanley tomorrow, after two promising home performances from his side.

The Brewers come into the game off the back of two consecutive 0-0 draws at home to promotion chasing Plymouth Argyle and Wigan Athletic.

The Albion Manager described the two performances as much improved and says his side need to take these performances into the next game.

“I expect nothing different from Accrington to the usual tough game. 

“They are a really difficult team to play against and we have to be at our best.

“It is about taking the performance from Tuesday and getting that level of performance again into the next game."

Hasselbaink says his side must continue to play well to start seeing a more positive outcome.

“I am pleased with our previous performances, but we want more from the outcome” said the Brewers boss.

“We believe we did enough to get the three points, but the performances are encouraging. We need to have these kind of performances week in week out and I am a big believer by doing this you will win a lot of games.

“I think eventually if we keep on creating chances like this, the ball is going to go into the net, and by keeping clean sheets we will accumulate a lot of points.

“I think that we as a squad have become a lot better, a lot more focussed and a lot more together.”

Speaking on the condition of the playing squad, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says there are no fresh injury concerns other than absence of Jonny Smith until the end of the season, confirmed earlier this week.

“Everybody is fine. Obviously, we have lost Jonny Smith who will be out for the season to a shoulder ligament injury.

“Terry Taylor should be back next week and of course we have Niasse is back too, so everybody is ok.”
