With their famous win at Huddersfield on Saturday Burton Albion have move up to 19th (6th bottom) place in the league table and 4 points above safety and very a good chance of staying in the Championship for next season, which would be great for the club and their fans.
Albion have a very good manager in Nigel Cough and they gave us everything we could handle in the away game when we narrowly won 2-1 on 17th December – so this team will not be taken lightly.
This could be the last season Newcastle are in the Championship – we hope it’s the last season Newcastle are in the Championship.
Burton captain John Mousinho
So the Burton players will not get the chance next season (hopefully) to play against Newcastle – at least not in the Championship.
Their captain John Mousinho has been speaking on the club’s web-site before the game and John says the players are really looking forward to the experience of playing at the famous St. James’ Park.
This is some of what Mousinho has said:
“These challenges are brilliant for everyone and last season we worked so hard to get promoted and that was the reason we came into pre-season this year and worked our socks off to get fit.”
“It’s a long grueling season but these are the games we embrace and the lads will really enjoy going to Newcastle and testing themselves against a massive club.”
“We are playing some fantastic players and everyone in our dressing room will relish it.”
It will be another tough game – but one we have to win.
