POST-MATCH VERDICT: FLEETWOOD

12 March 2022

DINO Maamria said the fans deserved to see a thrilling win after giving the team great support through a difficult patch.

Albion came from 2-0 down to grab three points with the winner coming in injury time.

It was a thrilling turnaround and one the assistant manager says the fans can enjoy.

“I think first and foremost it was a great three points and the character the team showed to come back from two goals down was immense. We have been through a sticky period and the fans have stuck with us. They have travelled on some long journeys and that performance, and that result was for them today.

“It was also so good to see the normal away stand full of children (from de Ferrers Trust Schools) and hopefully they have gone away happy and the way we won the game has given everyone a lift.”

The Brewers fell behind in the 18th minute and looked in trouble when Fleetwood doubled their lead on 57 minutes.

Maamria said: “Our performance in the first half was full of anxiety. When you go through a period like we have, and you have a lot of young players then everyone is waiting for something to happen. They scored from a free kick against the run of play and that’s what can happen when you are not in a run of good form. When things go against you at home that’s always going to test you, but we came back strongly in the second half, and it was a good performance and I think overall we deserved to win the game.

“Jonny Smith was back to his best and was absolutely unplayable today. It was good to see Louis Moult coming back, he has been working hard behind the scenes and it was great to see him scoring that goal in front of our fans.”

The other two Albion strikes came from Oumar Niasse.

Maamria said: “Niasse has that quality that’s why we brought him here.

“We made a lot of changes in January, and we know we had a run of games against big clubs that would be difficult. Hopefully we have come through that now and this three points will give us a big lift.”
