BURTON Albion boss Gary Rowett thinks some of his players are coming bang into form at exactly the right time.
The Brewers manager has got the best out of the likes of Jacques Maghoma this season and is seeing his side flourish as they chase a promotion place from League Two.
Billy Kee, too, is starting to look back to his best after an injury-disrupted year and both players will have a big say in where Albion finish the season.
“At this stage of the season, players running into form can make a huge difference during the run-in,” said Rowett.
“We’ve got Mags and Billy, who have scored three goals each in their last two games.
“Players on that little run of form can be the difference between two teams.
“Matches like this one against Exeter, we seem to lift our game and always seem to come up with an answer.”
Nathan Stanton (knee) and Aaron Webster (hamstring) are the only injury doubts when Exeter City visit the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow (Saturday, February 23), kick-off 3pm, while Zander Diamond sits out the third match of a four-game suspension.
Meanwhile, off the pitch the club is looking to get as many fans as possible through the turnstiles for the rest of the season.
Under-16s will get into the Morecambe game at the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday for just £1.
“‘The initiative is a very positive move from the club and I hope as many young Brewers fans as possible will be able to take advantage,” said Rowett.
“Our home form has been a major factor in our success this season and it goes without saying that the support we receive in the stands is very important.
“Our fans will certainly have a big part to play at the Pirelli from now to the end of the season.”
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson hopes the offer will make the game affordable for all Burton fans who might otherwise give it a miss.
“With the Morecambe game coming just three days after Exeter as well as being on a Tuesday evening, we’re keen to make the match as accessible as possible to our supporters,” he said.
“By charging just £1 for juniors, we hope to see additional support on Tuesday, which will undoubtedly give the players a boost during a hectic but vitally important fixture schedule.”
