A 4-2 win against Burton Albion lifts the Derby County Community Trust’s Elite Football Education team up to 11th in the league.
Wednesday 29th November saw braces from Kyle Daley and Levonte Johnson earn the DCCT Elite side a much needed three points against their Burton equivalents.
The win perfectly tees up next week’s fixture away at Coventry City, who currently find themselves 12th in the league, providing the perfect opportunity for the Derby side to string together back to back wins.
Following the win, manager Jake Straw said:
“Really pleased for the lads, they’ve worked hard over the last couple of weeks and not got the results they’ve deserved. I don’t think today was our best performance of the season so far but we showed great character to still come out with the win. We are now really looking forward to taking the positives from this game into next week’s game against Coventry”.
Captain Callum James said:
“It was a tough game which we were expecting based on their position in the league. After last week’s loss to Burnley we all wanted to bounce back and get the three points. The lads battled well throughout the game and played some good football at times which caused them a lot of problems. But I’m delighted to have got the three points and we are looking forward to the next game”.
