Burton Albion midfielder Jamie Allen has claimed that he is keen to start registering more assists, as reported by Derbyshire Live.

The Brewers currently occupy 18th in the League One table, hovering dangerously over the relegation zone with just a point separating them and 22nd-placed Bradford City.

23-year-old Allen, however, has been a shining light for Nigel Clough’s side and has netted in wins over Sunderland and Burnley this season.

Despite impressing, the former Rochdale man is keen to start registering more assists and haul Burton up the table:

“I’m doing okay, obviously I know I can do a lot better – there’s always time to improve on your game. I need to set up my teammates as well and score, that would help a lot. But I feel like I’m working well for the team and everyone is working for each other.

“I think I need to improve on that (assist making) more. Not necessarily improve on it, just get in the spaces where I can get those passes off for teammates to score.”

Burton host Bristol Rovers tomorrow and Allen has called for his teammates to sharpen their clinical edge:

“We’re making the chances, we’re just not putting them in.

“We are playing well, I feel. We’re having most of the ball, it’s just one or two mistakes that are letting us down at the minute. We just need to put our chances away when we get in that final third. I think if we get an early goal, we’ll start having more confidence in front of goal as well.

“We are creating a lot of chances, but we’re only putting one or two in, or maybe none at all. So hopefully we can score and then open up and get more.”

Despite occupying a lowly league position, Burton have an EFL Cup clash with Nottingham Forest to look forward to at the end of October after claiming a Premier League scalp in the previous round. Burnley were the victims of the upset and it provided Brewers supporters with a sign of the side’s potential.
