Gary Rowett: It's in our hands

The Brewers missed out on a win which would have taken them into the automatic promotion spots after James Beattie scored an injury-time equaliser in a 3-3 draw at Accrington.

Rowett, whose team are fifth - one point behind the top three - said: "We've got Port Vale next and then three out of our last four games are at home, so it's in our hands.

"After Port Vale we've got to be where we want to be and then it's up to us.

"We feel disappointed at the moment as we should have won at Accrington as we were 3-2 up with two minutes to go and I felt we were in control, but you've got to clear your lines and the one time we didn't, we were punished.

"But, saying that, that point could prove vital at the end of the season and it could be a good point.

"We showed bags of character after going behind twice and the important thing is we didn't lose the game."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
