BURTON manager Gary Rowett is pleased at his side getting a bye in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. The Brewers have never won a match in the competition in five years as a Football League club.

But this season they have a chance to take a rest while other sides have to play the first round, with the draw to be made on August 16.

"That just gives you a little breather with games coming thick and fast at the start of the season," said Rowett.

"It also takes away a little headache of working out who can and can't play.
