Burton Albion

2 assists, 7 created chances: Burton Albion’s most underrated star this season?



Burton Albion might just pull off the greatest of escapes this weekend with a late push for survival in the Championship.

The Brewers looked dead and buried as they headed to Sunderland not so long ago but since that dramatic late win at the Stadium of Light they have kicked on.

Of course, the odds are still stacked against them but they have a chance and, given their recent history, you just wouldn’t be surprised if they got out of trouble.

Ahead of the final day, though, we’ve been looking at their unsung heroes and you’d have to say this young bright spark has been on of them:

Relatively unknown until this season, Joe Sbarra is really starting to catch the eye now with some live-wire performances for the men in yellow.

Whilst it would be wrong to claim that his impact alone has ensured that Burton have a chance this weekend, it also wouldn’t be fair to overlook how brave he’s been on the ball and at showing a real willingness to try things when others might be feeling the pressure.

He could be key as Burton look to stay up this weekend, then, and if they do end up going down, him getting a move elsewhere in the second tier might not be out of the question.
