DEFENDER Cameron Burgess is aiming to build on the brilliant start that Accrington Stanley made to the new season when they face their first league trip of 2020/21, to familiar territory.

It is just two weeks since the Reds made the journey to Burton Albion as they kicked off the campaign in the Carabao Cup.

They lost the tie 4-2 on penalties, after Burgess scored to equalise in the final 10 minutes and secure a 1-1 draw to set up the shoot-out.

But they are back at the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow looking to make it back-to-back wins after seeing off Peterborough United in the League One opener last weekend.

"It's something we can build on, we have to use that and we know we can do," said former Scunthorpe defender Burgess, who signed a three-year deal at the Wham Stadium this summer.

"We've played against Burton already and I think we know what they can bring, and they'll know the same about us.

"I think we'll be stronger for having played a few games since then, so bring it on.

"Obviously a lot of us have played against them before and they don't seem to change too much, they've got a very successful style of play and it seems to work for them.

"We just need to go about our business the way we have been doing and keep progressing."

Stanley sprang what, on paper, was a surprise against ambitious Peterborough, who missed out on the play-offs by virtue of the points per game formula used after lockdown to finalise Leagues One and Two.

Reds boss John Coleman has had another rebuilding project after losing key players from last season, including Jordan Clark and Callum Johnson, while Posh have added to their existing squad in the hope of influencing another promotion push.

Burgess is among Stanley's newest recruits, and urged them not to get carried away by last weekend's result and instead use it as a platform to build on.

"We're not the finished article by any means, so we've got more work to do and hopefully we can carry that on," said the 24-year-old.

Manager Coleman, who this week signed a new four-year deal along with assistant Jimmy Bell and first team coach John Doolan, added: "We possibly got Peterborough at the right time, and we've got a tough game coming up against Burton.

"We've seen them first-hand last week and we've seen a bit of them this week as well and that it'll be a tough game, but every game we play is going to be tough.

"We've got to try and get as many points on the board as we can, as early as we can."
