DINO MAAMRIA - BOLTON WANDERERS PREVIEW

14 February 2022

DINO Maamria gave an update on the squad ahead of Burton Albion’s home fixture against Bolton Wanderers tomorrow night (7.45pm kick-off).

The Brewers assistant manager described injuries to Deji Oshilaja and Jonny Smith as ‘touch and go’ ahead of tomorrow, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will miss tomorrow night’s clash.

“I think the past two games against Portsmouth and Cambridge we lost some key players to injury, which never helps.” Dino stated.

“With Jonny it is touch and go, as well as Deji who is also touch and go. We will wait to see how they are tomorrow and then we will take it from there.”

“Cameron has got a concussion so he is out for another five days. He got a knock on the head last game, so he will be out and will return later this week. He is doing ok.”

Despite frustration on Saturday, Dino says the players are in high spirits ahead of tomorrow night and insists the squad is motivated ahead of the visit of Bolton.

“The mood is great, we had a meeting this morning and we are energising the team after a performance we thought was worthy of the three points.

“The players were disappointed, but when there is a quick turn over, you have to energise and educate them so they can get better and perform better.”

“There is only a couple of days from one game to the next, so we do our best to keep them motivated and make sure the spirits are high.”

Speaking on Bolton, Maamria said they have strengthened their squad very well during the January transfer window and expects a difficult test tomorrow.

“They had a very good Janauary window, they spent their money well and strengthened in the right areas.” Dino said.

I watched their game against Oxford back, it was a very good game from both teams. We know they have great players with good experience, but it isn’t about them, it’s about what we do tomorrow and how we respond from Saturday.

“We need to put in a good performance, try to nullify their threats and then we can capitalise on their weaknesses.”
