DESPITE picking up three points against Saturday's opponents Lincoln City on Boxing Day, Dino Maamria says he knows how tough of a task his side faces against The Imps this weekend.

Maamria gave an update on the Brewers camp ahead of the trip to Sincil Bank, as the Brewers look to record just their third away win of the season in Sky Bet League One.

“There was lots of disappointment after last week. We had a really good week (last week) and conceded after 19 seconds.

“Against Lincoln in the reverse fixture at the Pirelli Stadium, we started really well and we know momentum is big in football.

“We are where we are for a reason, but we know we must pick up points in the rest of January as well as strengthening the team.

“If we get the win on Saturday that will give us a huge lift for the rest of the window and of course the season,” said the Brewers manager.

Maamria stated the importance of avoiding individual mistakes, saying: “The last game against Lincoln (on Boxing Day) and Forest Green we made barely any mistakes and look at the chance it gives you. We must start doing the basics really well and we know we will have chances to win games.”

Maamria believes that the two signings that the squad have made this week will also boost the squad leading into the game.

Albion have added Zac Ashworth from West Bromwich Albion, as well as Jasper Moon from Barnsley, following on from the signings of Mark Helm and Craig MacGillivray.

“Zac is a terrific young player, we know we need to strengthen the backline and hopefully Zac can give us that balance and energy on our left side”, said Dino.

“Jasper is a very good centre back, he does the basics really well. He wins his tackles and headers. He’s experienced a lot of first team football especially at championship level so hopefully he can strengthen our backline.”

The Brewers boss also provided an injury update, saying that there was no good news update on Sam Hughes or Conor Shaughnessy, who will both remain out of Saturday’s fixture.

“There’s no new injury news on them two (Hughes and Shaughnessy), but the one we are monitoring is Bobby (Kamwa). Bobby had a tight hamstring in the last couple of weeks and he trained a little bit this week. He’s touch and go.”
