BREWERS LESS OF SURPRISE
STRIKER Lucas Akins believes Burton won’t be able to rely on the element of surprise to get by in the Championship this season.
The Brewers survived by the skin of their teeth last time, finishing a point above the relegation zone, and the 28-year-old insists his side must improve.
“The only difference is probably that other teams are a year more experienced,” said Akins.
“They realise our strengths and weaknesses a little bit more and probably won’t take us for granted as much.
“I’m not saying they did, but the element of surprise may have helped us.”
