Coleman on Burton Albion encounter

7 September 2012

Manager John Coleman reflects on Tuesday night's penalty shoot out win over Fleetwood Town, and ahead to this weekend's League Two encounter against Burton Albion at Spotland. 

“I was happy with the effort we put in on Tuesday night but disappointed at the way we defended set plays," said Coleman. "Overall we played some good football, we played really well in the second half and conceded when we were probably having our best spell. We made hard work of it in the end but it was pleasing to go through.

“Every time you play at home you’re going to be targeting them as your chance to win games. We have to try and make our ground a fortress and you can only do that by winning games and winning them in a short space of time.

“Burton Albion certainly won’t be a pushover; they’ve had a good result at Leicester on the back of a 6-2 win so it shows they’ve certainly got an ability to score goals.”
