Artell: "Burton Are A Real Good Team With A Good Manager"

3 September 2019

Alex boss Dave Artell is wary ahead of his side's Leasing.com Trophy clash with Burton Albion at Gresty Road tonight.

The League One side, managed by Nigel Clough, have enjoyed a decent start to the new season winning five of eight games with an unbeaten away record still intact.

Although both teams are expected to make changes for the Northern Group E tie, The Alex gaffer is still expecting a good footballing game.

Artell said: “We played Burton behind closed doors towards the end of last season at St Georges Park & they're a real good team with a good manager.

“He knows the game inside out & he’s got a good staff as well behind & they play the right way – it will be a footballing game.

“I know the fans that came to watch Villa saw a footballing game, but the ones who came to watch Walsall & Bradford only saw one team trying to play football. 

"This game will be two teams trying to play football in the right way & we’ve got to make sure we come out on top."

The match kicks-off at 7:30pm & tickets are available from the ticket office at £10 adults, £6 seniors & £2 juniors. Click here for more info.
