Chasing game for McGrath as hosts have right moves
JOHN McGrath pinpointed the difference Burton Albion's midfielders, particularly, had found in facing an in-form Championship side, rather than the Brewers' usual League Two opposition.
The club captain made his first start after an 11-month injury lay-off and found the Foxes dictating the game almost all the way through.
"Chasing without the ball is lot harder than chasing with it!" said McGrath.
"Conceding after three minutes changed our game plan. We had to try to meet them head on but they have good players who can pick you off.

"In certain circumstances, in a League Two game, you can kind of dictate. If you put enough pressure on people, the ball's going to break. I've made a name for myself over the years for closing people down.
"But if you go at the wrong time against players like Andy King, they just skip by you.
"You try to get close to people but they had wingers coming off, full-backs coming inside.
"Their movement was really good, movement that we haven't come up against at all really.
"But I don't think we disgraced ourselves. They beat a good Huddersfield side 6-1 last week, so we can come away with our heads held high."
