YOUNG Brewers midfielder Ronny Wakelin was pleased with his stunning strike in our most recent game but felt individual errors are what ultimately cost Burton Albion in our 5-3 by Lincoln City.

Despite falling behind twice in the opening half The Young Brewers were resilient and showed good character as they bounced back quickly to ensure Friday’s encounter remained a competitive one for the majority of the opening hour.

Wakelin was a key player for The Albion on Friday as he scored a superb goal from 30 yards out in the 30th minute which at the time pegged back The Imps who had gone 1-0 in this encounter.

Speaking about his stunning strike in the post-match interview, Wakelin said: "It just came to me across from Connor (Pace) and I looked up, checked and saw a lot of space around me so I took a good first touch which set me in a good position.

"I just hit it and as soon as it left my foot, I knew I’d hit it well and when it moved I knew the keeper had no chance."

The young midfielder felt his goal came at a crucial time which ensured the Brewers pushed on and went out to try and win the game.

"I thought I did well, I obviously scored a good goal and I thought it set us up at the start well.”

Similarly to PDP Lead Coach Keith Gilroy, Wakelin felt his team played well at spells in the game and ultimately the players were left frustrated by the way the game finished.

"It was a bit frustrating to be fair I think we were the better team on the day, but we had chances which we didn’t score," he said.

"I think we were dominating but we let it get a bit scrappy and we kept giving it away and it was a bit of a mess and we let them get onto us more than we should have.

"Individually mistakes were made and the red card did not help at all but we go again next week."
