We're becoming a hard team to beat - Wright

City skipper Bailey Wright has reflected on another clean sheet and extending the unbeaten run.

The defender helped the Robins secure a point at home to Burton Albion on Friday night.

The visitors frustrated City who dominated the match with 75 per cent possession.

Speaking after the game. Wright told BCTV: "We know what they are about. It was frustrating that they came here and played for a draw and fair play to them, they got that. For us the positives are that we got a clean sheet when it wasn’t really our night.

"We played some good football but found it hard to break them down. But a point is a point, we got a clean sheet although I’d rather concede and win but it is what it is and we move on.

"There are things we would have liked to have done better but we will very much look to the positives and look to carry them forward. We’re becoming a hard team to beat and play against. They came here and showed us a lot of respect I think and played for the draw. We will look at what we could have done better and we are unbeaten but I’d rather we were unbeaten with a win."

EXCLUSIVE BCTV INTERVIEW

INTERNATIONAL EXERTS

Wright travelled with Australia for their World Cup qualifiers but suspension and injury prevented him from kicking a ball over the international break.

It was 50/50 regarding whether or not he would feature against the Brewers but he ended up playing the full 90 minutes.

He said: "I feel fine. Travelling is something I’m used to and I enjoy it. It was disappointing for myself to have to come back early and miss out on an important game for Australia which I was gutted about. I wasn’t quite ready to be available for the game. It would have been a bit of a risk for myself so it was frustrating but the positive is I was able to play tonight and I felt fine in the 90 minutes."

As for Wright's Australia, they beat Syria 2-1 last week to set up a play-off against Honduras, with a place at next year's World Cup in Russia on the line.

Wright continued: "We would have liked to have qualified by now but that’s football and sometime you have to do it the hard way.

"The boys showed some great character the other night against Syria and I was fortunate enough to watch it at the training ground and I was supporting them all the way. It was a difficult game with a lot of pressure and we find ourselves in another big game against Honduras next month."
