AN inspired performance from Bobby Kamwa helped Burton Albion gain a huge point against local rivals Derby County on Saturday to extend our impressive unbeaten home run.

Following a second half where Albion felt like they could have secured all three points, Kamwa emphasised the positives the team can take from the point gained.

Kamwa said: “I know there were chances but it’s coming. We’re working hard in training to turn that around.

“(In the) second half of the season, we’re really going to be going for it and hopefully start picking up the three points.”

Throughout the weekend draw, Kamwa caught the eye down the left-hand side with his pace and skill. After the game, he was keen to point out how much he relished having the licence to take on defenders.

“Today I loved it," said the former Leeds United man.

"It’s been a long time coming so I feel like I can offer even more and with more time I feel like I could really express myself.”

Speaking on Albion’s recent unbeaten run, Kamwa put it down to the determination of everybody at the club working to improve the team.

He said: “It’s everything, it’s fitness, it’s commitment, it’s the backroom staff to help us get into the best shape so on Saturday we’re able to give our all and that’s what we’re all trying to do.”

Kamwa highlighted how hard the team are working in training to create and take more opportunities, in the second half the 22-year-old almost found the back of the net himself with a curled effort that narrowly whistled past the far post.

“It was just a little placement one that just went wide but in games like this, you just need to take your chances," said Kamwa.

"If I can create myself some space and take a shot they’re going to start going in, I’m confident of that.”

At a sold out Pirelli Stadium with just under 6000 in attendance, Kamwa pointed out how much the crowd affects the players in a positive way - and hopes Albion can carry their momentum into tomorrow night's Papa Johns Trophy last-16 clash with Accrington Stanley.

“When there’s an atmosphere like that, it gets the players going, for me personally," he said.

“It gets me going because I thrive on an atmosphere like that, as a player it definitely makes you play better and I just enjoyed it, hopefully it’s like that every weekend.

“We want to go to Wembley, the boys are really up for it, we’ll come back in on Monday then bring on Accrington on Tuesday.”
