Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink admitted his side’s defending in their 3-0 loss at Wycombe Wanderers was ‘lazy’.

The Brewers were three goals down by the half hour mark thanks to goals from David Wheeler, Anis Mehmeti and Josh Scowen, and the former Premier League striker also believed the Chairboys should have been awarded a penalty in the opening stages of the game.

Mehmeti looked like he was dragged to the ground by Deji Oshilaja after just 37 seconds, but referee Gavin Ward waved away the appeals.

He said: “If you’re going to start a first half like that then you’ve got no chance. We were second best.

“There are certain things that I want to see back that we have worked on in pre-season, and we didn’t see that.

“That’s the disappointment about it.

“All three goals came from a throw-in, and all get thrown into the number four, the midfielder (Dominic Gape). And we weren’t picking him up.

“That’s just not acceptable, we worked on that.

“That’s just lazy.

“We need to really look back at the game and look at the video and show them and we need to improve and really quickly.”
