Burton Albion’s John Brayford has told the Burton Mail that he is looking forward to a break after the end of the season.
The Brewers had their first season ever in the Sky Bet Championship this year, with Brayford being brought in on loan from Sky Bet League One champions Sheffield United to help them to battle against relegation. And against many predictions, they have done exactly that with Burton being safe from relegation with a game to go.
That means their last game of the season against Reading is set to be a party with the team rejoicing at the fact they will be spending another year in the Championship. And for Brayford, who was the runner-up to Jackson Irvine in the Player of the Year award votes, he will be happy to see the end of the season because he believes that the entire team deserve a break after achieving something so historic for the club.
He said: “Every credit to everybody in there, they all deserve a break at the end of the season,”
“It might sink in in four or five weeks and people will probably look at us with the wrong mindset and say we were only achieving staying up.”
“Compared to any other clubs it’s an achievement far above anybody else in this league and what they have achieved in my own personal opinion.”
“I think we have every single right to enjoy this moment I time and come back in the summer refreshed and see where Burton Albion goes from there.”
