JOHN DREYER'S POST-MATCH VERDICT: WYCOMBE

19 August 2023

BREWERS assistant manager John Dreyer said a clean sheet and a point was a solid base from which to build on for the Brewers.

Albion battled to a 0-0 draw at Wycombe Wanderers with lots of positives for Dreyer, who talked to the press after manager Dino Maamria was given a second yellow card after the final whistle. The resulting red card meant that he was unable to talk to the media after the game.

Dreyer said: “We were more than delighted with the performance as all the players put in a shift.

“We came into the game on the back of some tricky results and it was just nice to get a clean sheet and put in a good solid performance where everyone contributed. They have some quality in their team, and this is a good point away from home.

“We kept to our game plan, stayed solid and we knew at some point that here would be chances there if we were patient. And we did get them, and John Brayford had a great opportunity at the end that just fell to his wrong foot. We still made chances amongst that desire to stay solid.

“Max Crocombe made some important saves and his all round game was terrific. He commanded his box and his kicking was very good and he made an outstanding point blank save. He has put in a claim for that No 1 shirt.

“We needed to get up and running and get our season started. We made a few adjustments here and there as we knew they posed a big threat from set plays and that we couldn’t give away cheap free kicks and we kept that down to a minimum.

“You have to consider that we have lost players through injury from the very first game. When you have a small pool of players to choose from that gives you big problems. But we managed to get Jasper Moon back on the pitch and he did really well and slowly and surely the rest are coming back to fitness, so all things considered this is a very good point.”

The Brewers now have a full week to prepare for the visit of Bolton Wanderers to the Pirelli Stadium next Saturday.

Dreyer said: ”You only have to look at Bolton’s squad to see why there is a great expectancy about them. It’s one of the games you look forward to and you want to test yourselves against.”
