Hello and welcome to my captain’s column this week.
I’m writing this under kind of bizarre circumstances.
As you all are aware by now I’ve gone out on loan to York City for one month to gain valuable first-team football action.
I wrestled with the idea of not doing my column for a month, but in the end decided to give you a view of life outside of Burton Albion and give an insight into how my month is going.
I’m still captain of the football club and felt it only right to fulfil my duty accordingly.
It was a very strange feeling pulling on another team’s colours on Tuesday night when I made my first league start in 12 months.
We did well against a very strong Gillingham side who, if they beat us, would have gone top of the league.
We drew 0-0 but we had the better of the chances and were a bit gutted to not gain all three points.
It was nice to get a full competitive 90 minutes under my belt but boy was I stiff on Wednesday.
I’ve spoken to all the boys at Burton during various parts of the week and I know they are all geared and ready to go to beat Fleetwood and maintain our position in the play-offs.
We had chances at the Pirelli back in August – particularly in the first half.
Jacques Maghoma had a couple of efforts go close while Billy Kee and Justin Richards also had shots saved.
They nicked one at the start of the second half and we weren’t able to force an equaliser to get something out of the game when a draw was the least we deserved.
Back in York, we entertain Edgar Davids’ Barnet as we look to climb the table.
As always be loud and be proud.
Come on you Brewers!
