MANAGER'S VERDICT: CAMBRIDGE UNITED

9 October 2023

DINO Maamria felt Burton Albion showcased their ability at both ends of the field, during the win over Cambridge United at the Pirelli Stadium.

The Brewers made it back-to-back home wins in the league, having dispatched Wigan Athletic last week, before goals from Josh Walker and Deji Oshilaja put Cambridge to the sword in front of the Sky Sports' cameras. 

Albion are now unbeaten in their last five Sky Bet League One games, and a strong offensive showing in the first half was backed up by a strong defensive display, to secure the win. 

Maamria said: "I've always kept constant belief in the group, we always deal with highs and lows in the same way, so we have to stay focused and keep doing the fundamentals, which are work hard and be on the front foot. 

"We have adjusted a few things behind the scenes, which people don't see, but now I can see how the team is growing, the way we build up from the back and how we attack with five players. When we do that well, teams find it difficult against us, because they don't know how to press or go back. 

"We are creating an identity, we like the way we play and I thought the first half was terrific. 

"The front three were terrific tonight, especially that first half, but in the second half, we were comfortable. They had a lot of possession but they never tested us. 

"To win games, you have to score when you're on top and show resilience in defence, no game is going to be easy."
