HARD WORK IS THE KEY TO GOOD RESULTS FOR THE BREWERS SAYS MILLS

4 January 2024

GARY Mills says that hard work is the key to success for the Brewers as he praised the squad for the effort put in since he took over as caretaker manager.

He said: “Working hard day in and day out is the minimum requirement at this football club. At the minute, they are doing that and putting in gritty performances. Confidence is good and we just need to make sure we keep going and keep delivering the minimum – which is hard work.

“We want positivity. We don’t want any negativity around us. We want to try and provide the fans with good performances. We know there will be bumps along the way, but we want to remain positive.”

Up next for the Brewers on Saturday at the Pirelli Stadium are Wycombe Wanderers who are three places and only one point above Albion.

Mills said: “They are a really good side; an experienced side with good attacking players in wide areas. They play forward a lot, an aggressive type of football and we have to match that. It will be a tough test.”

The Brewers have injury concerns for Kwadwo Baah, Cole Stockton, Steve Seddon and Ryan Sweeney.

Mills said: “Steve didn’t train today but we are hoping he will train tomorrow. Ryan did train today but is still feeling a bit of a dead leg. He was desperate to play at Bolton which shows the spirit of the man but he should be available at the weekend.

“Cole has felt his hamstring and therefore he is a doubt and KB felt his hamstring today which is a blow to us.”

Mark Helm’s foot injury is going to take longer to heal than first anticipated with the midfielder now expected to miss another four to six weeks.

Mills said “Mark is back on the grass, but we are looking at mid-February. We don’t want to rush the bone bruising and turn it into a stress fracture so we need to be careful how we manage that and we don’t want to put any pressure on the boy in terms of coming back.”

Kegs Chauke is now back in training and in contention after his ankle ligaments injury.

Mills said: "He's back on the grass and he now has an opportunity to try and force his way into a very strong midfield area."

With the transfer window now open Mills says there will almost certainly be movement but probably later in the window.

He said: “It’s ongoing behind the scenes and the Chairman is fantastic in backing us in what we are trying to do. It’s a process which we will keep in house for now and hopefully there will be some news in the coming weeks.”
