REACTION: PATERSON FEELS ALBION SHOULD HAVE TAKEN ALL THREE POINTS

29 March 2024

BREWERS manager Martin Paterson says that he is disappointed his team didn’t take all three points from today’s 1-1 draw away at Wigan Athletic.

Paterson said that there was lots of positives from today’s display, especially after his side came from a goal behind, but added he told his side at full time of his dissatisfaction at not winning the game.

“We should have should have won the game. I can say that confidently and with great humility", said Paterson.

"We should have won the game. We gave away a crazy goal, but I'm not about hanging people out to dry - we're a group and we make mistakes as a collective.

“We responded ever so well, but there's been a few harsh words at the end of the game, because ultimately, I think we should have taken more from the game.

"We did respond well and I was really pleased with the effort. I was really pleased with the non-negotiables in terms of first contact, second contact and that looked like a Burton Albion team to me.

“I was I'm really pleased following on from last weekend with what I saw - That's the standard now and I never want to see that drop again from a Burton Albion team.”

“I've told the players that but I don't care about anybody else. We've got to focus on nobody else and we have to go and get points. We have to give performances to get results, because nobody else is going to help us go and get them. I wasn't accepting anything other than what I saw today. That's the bare minimum. And we should have won the game.

Paterson says that he will turn the Albion squad’s focus straight onto Monday’s huge home game against Barnsley.

“It's a big game - they all are now, so it's a mini season ahead.

“I was just pleased today we looked like ourselves. We know the challenge ahead and we don’t want to rely on anybody else. We have to go and get the wins!”
