Robbie Weir shelves his champagne and says it's too soon for Burton Albion to celebrate
ROBBIE Weir clutched his man-of-the-match champagne after scoring twice against Cheltenham Town on Saturday – but says he is targeting automatic promotion for Burton Albion before opening it.
Weir's non-stop displays in midfield have been a feature of the Brewers' run to third place in the League Two table, which they aim to consolidate with an away game at Aldershot Town tonight (7.45pm).
They travel again on Saturday, to Dagenham & Redbridge.
"Things are going for us at the minute," said Weir.

"Teams around us lost again on Saturday and, hopefully, that will give us a bit of breathing space but, tonight, we have to kick on again and get another three points away to Aldershot.
"Our away performances haven't been the best but the lads need to get themselves up – we're third for a reason and if we got four points from the next two games, I think we'd be happy enough.
"We can't get too far ahead of ourselves – we haven't done anything yet.
"Yes, we are sitting in a nice position but we have to kick on now, knuckle down and keep working hard. We can celebrate if we go up.
"But I do think we can go for automatic promotion. If we can take what we're doing in our home games into our away games, we'll be happy enough."
Weir's own confidence will have been boosted by scoring his first goals since November in Saturday's 3-1 win over Cheltenham.
"I've been waiting a long time for those," he said.
"I've had a few chances in the last couple of games and, luckily enough, two of them went in for me this time, so I'm over the moon.
"Three points is more important but I'm happy enough to have started scoring again.
"I was scoring a few in pre-season and I said then I'd aim for 10. Oh, I'll still say 10. I'll aim for it but I probably won't get it!"
