GARY Rowett insisted he was happy despite this afternoon's 1-0 defeat to Southend United.

In what turned out to be a dress rehearsal for the League Two play-off semi-finals, the Brewers went down to a 22nd-minute Barry Corr goal.

But having made five changes to rest players for the coming weeks' crucial double-header against the Shrimpers, Rowett was unconcerned.

"We know we will be stronger so I'm not to disappointed and quite pleased.
