Burton boss sets Austin goal

Burton boss Paul Peschisolido has told defender Ryan Austin to put his injury problems behind him and produce a big season for Albion.

Austin has had a luckless couple of years after suffering a cruciate knee ligaments injury in 2009. He then struggled to force his way back in the side before snapping a tendon in a 4-1 defeat to Barnet in April. But Austin is now fit again and Peschisolido wants the 26-year-old to prove his worth to the team.

"Ryan is midway through the best contract of his career, so it's a big season for him coming up," Peschisolido told the Burton Mail.

"If we can get him playing like he was before he did his knee, then it will be like making a new signing."

Austin has made almost 250 appearances for the Brewers and Peschisolido showed how highly regarded he is by offering him a new contract in 2010, despite still recovering from injury. The Canadian is now hoping that his faith in the centre-back will be rewarded.


"Everyone comes back with a clean slate in July and the opportunity is there for him to make a case for himself," he said. "I would like to see Ryan flying again because I know what a good player he is when he's fully fit and in the right frame of mind."
