We set out with our game plan and it was over in about 90 seconds.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "Credit to the boys, in the situation that we're in it would've been easy to fold, but we have got a spirit amongst us that we showed in the second half. [LNB]"We worked on finishing in training with everybody, but we're obviously going to have to work on defending this week." [LNB]Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "I'm lost for words - don't know what to say. I'm embarrassed, I don't know what happened. We just fell apart. [LNB]"They didn't cause us any trouble whatsoever in the first half, but when we came out for the second half, right from the start we were flat. [LNB]"Despite that, we still scored some great goals, but if you're as soft as that and you can't deal with the long ball and you can't deal with any type of physical strength, then you're not going anywhere."
