"We need to start killing teams off!" - Ellis Barkworth

6 days ago By Jay Taylor

This week we caught up with Albion defender Ellis Barkworth after the 4-1 win at Wisbech Town.

“It was a very good win on Saturday” started Barkworth.

“To be fair I think we won well too because we went in at half-time 2-1 up when we had the wind behind us which made it a lot easier. We took advantage of this so we weren’t chasing the game in the harder conditions in the second half, we could just play on the counter and it worked perfectly for us.”

The victory in Norfolk made it two wins out of two for the week and the month of October as the Brewers look to kick-start their season.

“It’s brilliant to start the month with two wins on the bounce and finally start to put a string of result together. It’s been a tough few months because we haven’t been playing badly, we’ve just been struggling to get the results but sometimes it’s not about how well you play you’ve just got to dig in and get results and we are starting to do that.

“It’s been a difficult start to the campaign because results haven’t been going our way, we’ve been playing very well for large parts of games but haven’t been finishing as well as we’ve started which has killed us with results. We need to start killing teams off and not letting them back in after we go ahead.”

With the Brewers on a two-game league winning run, their attention now turns to the cup competitions and Barkworth thinks it may have come at a bad time.

“This is probably bad timing for the cup games to come after the last two results in the league. I say this because we would like to get on a roll and starting working our way up the table to where we think we should be but at the end of the day it’s still football matches and if we play well and get results it could boost us even more and get us flying when the league games do return.”

“The mood in the camp is always good, even when results weren’t going our way everyone turns up to training in a good mood and having banter which helps everyone train better and I think that’s why we’ve had a good results recently.”
