Brewers desperate to get underway

Burton Albion assistant manager Gary Rowett says the players are "desperate" to get their first season in the Football League up and running.

Rowett said the release of the fixture list has heightened the sense of anticipation around the club.

"They [the fixtures] are all great and all blend in to one because the players are so desperate to play the games," Rowett told BBC Radio Derby.

"All games are winnable. It's about going in flying and having a good go."

Rowett said the prospect of playing at better venues, with better facilities and in front of bigger crowds was a mouth-watering one.

"If you played in the Conference last season and played at some of the venues that the players have been at then I'm sure some of these venues look like a million dollars," he said.

And Rowett said both he and manager Paul Peschisolido are just as enthusiastic as the players about life in League Two.

"We are both massively excited," he said. "We are desperate to get started, the season can't come quick enough."

Peschisolido added: "The players have waited a long time for this they are keen to get cracking.

"The players are keen to prove themselves, they are very keen to make names for themselves.

"We are just excited to get going. It becomes a reality now."
