SPELL ON SIDE ‘WILL HELP ME’

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LU­CAS Akins was de­lighted to re­turn to the Bur­ton side last week­end and hopes that watch­ing from the side­lines will ben­e­fit him in the weeks to come.

The Brew­ers trav­elled to Brent­ford yes­ter­day off the back of a six-game un­beaten run and 28-yearold for­ward Akins paid tes­ta­ment to the back­room staff for get­ting him back so quickly.

He said: “It’s al­ways dis­ap­point­ing when you’re miss­ing games. You feel pow­er­less and more ner­vous for the lads.

“On the flip side, you see games from a dif­fer­ent an­gle and it’s been great see­ing the lads do well.”
