“The body feels good; I’m feeling fit, strong and I’m back enjoying my football again.”
“One thing that was crucial to me coming back was getting game time and minutes on the pitch which I’ve had and this has definitely helped me with my fitness levels.”
“Being honest, after the amount of time I’ve had out through injury and with discussions with my physio, that first 5-10 yards and sharpness off the ball, which is a big part of my game, will take time to come back, maybe even a couple of months. However having said this, I need to be patient and I feel as though I’m getting there with every game that goes by.”
The Brewers were somehow held to a draw on Saturday as missed chances was the theme once again.
“I thought we played well as a team, kept the ball well and our build-up play was good but we need to be more ruthless in front of goal, too many chances were missed which is why he had to settle for a draw in the end.”
Albion have struggled to get going at home yet this season, so we put the question as to why that is to Jake.
“Tough question, the only thing I could maybe put it down to is being too comfortable at home. It’s a great surface we have and as a team we like to try and get the ball down and play, maybe we get into a mentality of trying to talk the ball into the net. It comes back to being more clinical as a team and finishing opponents off.”
“We have to keep being patient as a team, keep believing in our ability and not getting frustrated when things don’t go our way sometimes. If we can continue this run and stick together, I believe we have a real chance.”
