Carlos: Burton caused us problems

Carlos Carvalhal congratulated Burton on their 3-1 win and admitted Wednesday failed to cope with the direct style of the home side.

The head coach said: “They have a certain style, they got the ball long up the pitch and it worked very well for them.” 

He added: “They caused us a lot of problems but we didn’t play with our full defensive line complete.

“We expected Tom Lees to recover but he felt pain and couldn’t play. We had to readapt our defensive line when Semedo came off and we didn’t stay as strong as we do normally.

“We tried to play our usual game but we couldn’t play as we can do. We expected to win three points and we didn’t get what we wanted but the good thing is we have another game on Saturday when we will do our best to try and win.”
