PATERSON DELIGHTED TO BE BACK AT PIRELLI STADIUM AFTER AWAY VICTORIES

22 February 2024

BREWERS manager Martin Paterson is pleased to be facing back-to-back home games after postponements have left Burton Albion without a home game since February 3.

The Brewers have won two on the road in that time and are now looking to bring that good form back to the Pirelli Stadium.

The manager said: “We are delighted to have a Saturday game at home and to get the supporters back to the Pirelli.

“It’s always nice to have good home form and we want the Pirelli to be a fortress. Performances across the board  are the players’ responsibility and my job home and away is to get points.”

The away wins were enjoyed by the travelling fans who gave manager and players warm support throughout.

Paterson said: “The most important connection is the supporters to the players and when the fans can see you have a group of hard-working players that play for the shirt my relationship with the supporters becomes quite easy. It’s credit to the players and to the group and the supporters can see that we have been competitive in every match. Long may that continue, and I hope we can put in a performance on Saturday that will make them proud.

“We aren’t thinking about Tuesday and Carlise. Team selection will be the strongest possible for Northampton and what we feel inside our system of play works against that opponent.

“We have bodies coming back from knocks and suspension so we are  looking in a healthy place and we have front-loaded the detail and preparation for all these games coming thick and fast. We are prepared, no excuses and ready to hunt down those teams ahead of us.

“We played a practice game on Tuesday so the players have played and worked physically hard this week so they will all be ready.

“Northampton will be a similarly difficult test to Leyton Orient because of the position they are in. They have put in a body of work over the season that means they are in a higher position than us so it's another hard game against a team who have performed well this season. But we say with all modesty that we are in decent form ourselves so it’s a really exciting challenge to be playing these teams who are ahead of us.”
