Surly they can't keep this up and hopefully we can then take command.

We jst are made look good by poor badly organised teams..full stop...plus given space as well..Im just hoping we can assert ourselves a lot more..but i think to be honest..a play off place is what this team is capable of..

What a barrage that first 25 mins was, defensively all over the place, going forward we looked decent, Edmundson worries me, all over the place at times, Leigh good going forward but needs to improve the defensive headers. I think we need to get Aluko off and Chaplin on, Ladapo working his arse off poor devil. There were signs they were starting to tire so hopefully we can take advantage second half. Jacksons pace can definitely be a weapon if we utilise it properly.

Poor first half Burton playing exactly how they want to. Town struggling to get any meaningful possession before the ball is launched towards are box. Harness and Jackson need to be replaced and maybe go 5 3 2 or 5 4 1, 4 3 3 is not working

Well I thought that was a pretty poor first half from Town, not sure but I canโ€™t recall a shot on target.

Might be a good omen that we're still level. They should be beating us.

Very interesting first half, and actually I've quite enjoyed it.

Mixture of positives and negatives for me - positives are that we do indeed look good going forward, and I think that in time Leigh and Harness could be as good a partnership down the left as Burns and Donacien down the right. I like Harness a lot but wish he wasn't so apt to play loose passes.

Negatives for me - we don't look too solid in defence. We still badly need a proven striker - Ladapo is on his 4th start now and still doesn't look like scoring, and he never seems to win the ball in the air either. Jackson is his usual crap self, bur most disappointing for me is Evans, he's so slow and negative.

Hoping for a more productive second half

Defence is a bit of a farce tonight, Woolfenden and Edmundson not on it, sloppy passing.

Ladapo one chance and fluffed his first touch.

Westlake commentating is getting a tad irritating now.

We look much better going forward since Chaplin replaced Aluko. I know Harness scored a very good goal but both he and Aluko either lose possession of gift the ball away far too often for my liking

That was a very good win against a hard working Burton side. It certainly didnโ€™t feel like a game between league leaders v bottom of the table.
