INTERVIEW: Burgess on facing Burton again

Defender Cameron Burgess grabbed his first goal for the club against Burton two weeks ago

18 September 2020

After scoring against Burton Albion two weeks ago, Accrington Stanley defender Cameron Burgess admits that the squad is now in a stronger position ahead of tomorrow's Sky Bet League One tie.

John Coleman's side are operating with a different formation this season, but Burgess explained that he is used to playing as one of three centre-backs in a team.

"It's something I'm kind of used to as I've played that formation quite a few times at different clubs, so I'm enjoying it.

"The clean sheet was the main thing on Saturday so I'm happy with that."

The Reds secured a 2-0 win over Peterborough United last Saturday and the defender is hoping that the team can build on that victory this weekend.

"It's something we can build on, we have to use that and we know we can do.

"We've played against Burton already and I think we know what they can bring, and they'll know the same about us.

"I think we'll be stronger for having played a few games since then, so bring it on."

Burgess grabbed his first goal for the club in the Carabao Cup tie with Burton two weeks ago, and the 24-year-old admitted that he and the rest of the team just need to keep playing the way they have been doing.

"Obviously a lot of us have played against them before and they don't seem to change too much, they've got a very successful style of play and it seems to work for them.

"We just need to go about our business the way we have been doing and keep progressing.

"We're not the finished article by no means, so we've got more work to do and hopefully we can carry that on."

The Australian signed a three-year deal with the Reds in the summer and he is happy to have settled in so well at the club.

"It's a good group of lads and a good group of staff, so I'm enjoying it and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season."
