The Opposition View - Burton Albion

The Opposition View - Burton Albion


Following yesterday's 2-1 win at Burton Albion, here are some views on the game from Brewers' manager Paul Peschisolido and a few of their fans.

The Burton boss bemoaned the fact that his side gave themselves a mountain to climb after going two goals down.

"It's not the first time we've done it," he said. "We've been down one-nil, two-nil, three-nil and come back, but you're just not going to come back from that deficit week-in week-out. We've got to learn from it, we can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot."

Praising Wycombe, Peschisolido said: "In the first half I thought they gave us a lesson in how to play football. They were excellent, their movement was good, they were attacking and their midfield two outran our midfield two."

"We had a little chat at half time and the boys came out, and in fairness they showed good character to come back, but it was too late by then."

Talking about Gareth Ainsworth's wonder goal, the Burton manager said: "I've said to the lads this season, there's not been a goal where someone scores and we applaud them but when it does happen you've just got to accept it."


The Burton fans were complimentary about Wycombe's performance and fair in their assessment of the game.

The following extracts are taken from 'Clough the Magic Dragon,' Football Forums and BBC606.

'First half, seriously poor, thanks to them playing us off the park and the seemingly young legs of 37 year old Gareth Ainsworth who gave Boertien a horrid time and scored a thunderbolt from 25 yards. The second goal should have been saved as there was only ever one place it was going to go. Second half we came out and surprisingly got back into the game. We ventured into their half for the first time and really took the game to them. A great goal from Harrad got us back into the fray, but we couldn't snatch the second that we needed, and 2-1 was probably a fair result given the dominance of Wycombe in the first-half. Overall a pretty poor day at the office, however we played possibly our best footballing opposition of the season so far.'

'Fair play to Wycombe. They looked a decent side who try to play the game the right way. In my opinion a loss was fair as we only turned in 15 mins of quality during the whole game.'

'We were played off the park in the first half. Our midfield won next to nothing, and if they did get a sniff they were hustled out of it by a Wycombe side closing us down immediately and putting on a powerful display against us. At half time they looked so good and in a different class to the Brewers. Second half we matched them and almost stole a point we didn't really deserve. This showed we had the class to play them, because Wycombe never slacked off.'

'Very impressed with Wycombe today, Showed us how to play proper football! Play-offs at least for them I reckon.'

'Disappointing scoreline but encouraging to see the Brewers outplay high-flying Wycombe in the second half, and had Webster not hit a post, who knows, we could have nicked it. To be fair Wycombe were the best side we have faced this season at home, and I'm sure they will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.'

'It was nice to see us come out in the second-half and have a go for twenty minutes, but I'm sorry, the overall performance yesterday was just not good enough.'

'In the first half we were dire. Wycombe had come to play football and they ran us ragged. Time after time they sliced through our defence. Can't complain at the result - Wycombe could have been out of sight at half time, and even if we did improve after the break, they still hit the post and could have done better with any of a number of breakaways.'
