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.”
