Reaction: Duff on Burton Albion

8 January 2022

Michael Duff was happy to take the positive of another League One point from his team's 1-1 draw with Burton Albion, but felt his side should have earned two more.

A dominant first half failed to yield more than just the one goal lead the team held at the interval after Callum Wright's well-taken volley.

Burton hit back in the second half with young Sheffield United loanee Daniel Jebbison levelling, with Duff feeling after the game that his team should have been far more in front than they had been at half time.

"We did enough in the first half alone," he said. "I think they've had one shot in the 46th minute.

"We had lots of chances - one-on-ones, hit the crossbar twice, should have had a penalty and to give them credit they made some unbelievable blocks. They put their bodies on the line. I've seen two or three of them back and you've got to give them credit for that. That's their job but not every team do it.

"Second half they changed a little bit and we couldn't quite wrestle the momentum back but I thought we did in the last ten minutes. We tweaked a couple of things and stemmed their flow.

"Even in the last ten minutes there are four or five opportunities where it could have just dropped to one of our players in the box but seemed to keep dropping to them.

"We'll take the positives, take the point, and move on."
