Sol's Burton Albion Preview

2 December 2019

Sol Campbell took to his press duties on Monday afternoon as he prepares to take on Nigel Clough’s side on Tuesday night.

On facing Burton Albion... 

Burton are a great passing team; they hold the ball well they look for the crosses and they look to get in behind teams. 

We’ve just got to make sure that we concentrate on the switch balls and the balls they try and get into the box. Weve got to be ready for that kind of play, their quick free kicks are also something we have to watch out for.  

So we’ve got to look out for a few things but we as a team have got to be bright and make sure we’re on top of our game and start the match well. 

On the benefits a break from football has had on the team... 

We had an internal game between the lads on Friday and Saturday, which was good for us and we looked at what we’ve got.

We involved some of the U23’s which was nice as we could look at a variety of players that we have. 

We played three sets of 25 minutes at Roots Hall, so it was good for the lads to play on an actual pitch. 

We got some of the guys who are coming back from injuries involved as we wanted them to get some more playing time on a bigger pitch, that was good because we could look at the different range of players at our disposal, and we got a lot out of the training sessions. 

We’re all excited to get back into action, we’ve had the time off and had some good training sessions. 

We’ve been looking at certain aspects of our game that we want to improve on, and we want to keep doing the right things, look at the fine details and most importantly cut out the little mistakes that we keep on making.  

Football is all about taking advantage of the little mistakes and being able to do the right things when you get your chances and hopefully, we can start to play like that. 

Team News... 

Sam Mantom is back fit, and we’ve had a look at him and that was good to see. He’s probably one of those players who I am looking at using tomorrow. 

Stephen Humphrys is ready but I don’t think he will be starting this soon, but he is another one that should be in and around the squad. 

It was good to see Jason Demetriou back out there as well.

Ethan Hamilton has a slight groin injury and we don’t want to risk him in any way that could make it worse. 

John White is still unavailable and so is Charlie Kelman.
