Burton Albion 3-1 Post Match Thread

Recommended Posts

We looked like worldbeaters early. This was precisely the sort of game we would've lost last season. The improvement is pretty clear. 

 

Think it is always going to look a bit disjointed and sloppy when we just slap together a more talented side that hasn't played together. Seemed like lots of miscommunication tonight that we don't normally see, but hard to blame the lads for that.

Man City at home in the quarters then!

 

First half bossed it. Passing game was brilliant.

 

Second half we were overrun at times and Burton took control. Goal was coming but Ward should have done better. We weathered their 15-min storm and got through a scrappy period.

 

The amount of chances and openings we had before and after they scored though. So many that we could have realistically put away as well. Finishing and final ball could have been so much better.

 

But we're through and the 2nd string (for the most part) get the job done. Wouldn't mind Colchester or Oxford/Sunderland in the next round.

At one stage in the first half I thought it would be another thrashing, but fair play to Burton and especially their keeper who was very good.

 

Nice for Kalechi to slot.

 

Gray and Tielemans showed glimpses of glory.

Comfortable scoreline in the end but anything but a comfortable performance. We created quite a bit but we were very sloppy in possession at times and our defending was very poor at times as well. They missed some clear chances and Ward made a great save at   2-1. Glad we're through but that was not a great performance and I doubt Brendan will be overly happy with it.
