MAAMRIA LOOKS FORWARD TO PLAYING WITH FREEDOM AGAINST LEAGUE LEADERS

27 April 2023

BREWERS manager Dino Maamria is looking forward to another big occasion as the Brewers can celebrate their League One status by battling with the league leaders.

The Brewers travel down to Devon this weekend for a trip to Home Park, where table-toppers Plymouth Argyle will be looking to seal promotion.

Albion have had a big say on the League One promotion race this season, having beaten Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday on route to securing their third-tier status next season. Manager Dino Maamria believes that the Brewers should be given more credit for their success in maintaining a League One position.

“It’s probably one of the biggest achievements in the Football League this season,” said Maamria. “You look at the players that teams like Ipswich or Sheffield Wednesday have available, and they are only meeting expectations.

“Pound-for-pound, we are the most overachieving team in the Football League, but nobody talks about that. I find myself having to promote the club for us because we don’t get given the same platform as these big clubs do by the media.

“People said that selling Victor (Adeboyejo) was the final nail in the coffin, and that’s just made us more determined. Securing our League One status is one of the biggest achievements across the Football League this season and it deserves a lot more credit on a bigger scale.”

The achievement has, however, been massively appreciated by Albion supporters. Maamria has stated that he is extremely grateful for all the supporters who have helped the team get over the line, and looks forward to being able to play the final three games without having to be wary of the league table.

“We were a little bit edgy at Lincoln due to having that pressure of securing our position,” said Maamria. “Now that the pressure is gone, we can go to Plymouth and play with more freedom to express ourselves and be positive whilst going for it.

“It’s going to be a good test for us to see how far we have come as a group. It’s not about spoiling Plymouth’s party; the players and fans share a lot of pride and hunger, and we want to keep playing in a manner we are proud of.”

With a potential return for Tom Hamer this weekend, it is looking like it could be a full-strength Brewers squad, with the exception of Terry Taylor who remains side-lined.
