MANAGER'S VERDICT | REDDITCH UNITED (H)

21 September 2022

BURTON Albion joint-manager Tommy Booth says "we proved we could find the net" after his side picked up their first three points of the season on Sunday, the Brewers cruising to a 5-1 victory on the road at Redditch United.

It was a comfortable win at the weekend for Albion as the Brewers put five past Redditch, diminishing any finishing issues that were raised in the 2-0 defeat to Worcester City the week before.

Co-manager Booth was much happier with his side following their second performance this season, however he noted that there are still things to work on - on the pitch and the sidelines.

"We were very very good in the first half," said Booth. "I think I killed it somewhat with all the changes but I’m learning.

"Five subs and rolling substitutions are still new to me, I’ve never experienced it in my life.

"I felt obligated to get the players as many minutes as I can, but that’s where they got their goal from and the momentum changed a bit."

On the finishing in today’s game following last week’s struggles in front of goal, Booth felt his side got their runs correct more often against Redditch.

“Our last game was really just an off day, we created lots of opportunities we were just unlucky in front of goal," said Booth.

"I said to the players before the game, the hardest part is getting in the right positions. They’re all capable of finishing - it’s just getting on the end of the ball and timing your runs right which we did (against Redditch).

"We proved that we could find the back of the net, hopefully we can just keep the positivity and the confidence going forward."

The Brewers were unlucky to concede late on in the match on Sunday, but Booth has no major concerns following the victory.

"We lost a bit of the shape in midfield which forced the ball backwards and then just a silly mistake cost us," he added.

"But that’s on me for making too many changes so I won’t stress about that one too much."
