Frazer Blake-Tracy said that it is fifty-fifty whether Burton recall him from his loan at Swindon
Frazer Blake-Tracy said that it is “fifty-fifty” over whether Burton Albion will recall him from his loan deal at Swindon in January. Total Sport’s Joe Acklam spoke with the defender following Swindon’s 1-0 defeat against Crewe.
The 27-year-old arrived at the County Ground on loan from Burton in the summer and has seven months left on his contract at the Pirelli Stadium.
Blake-Tracy said that he had had discussions with his parent club over a potential return in January, but he doesn’t expect to ever pull on the yellow shirt again.
He said: “I have always said that I want to play at the highest level possible, in the Championship and certainly in League One again.
“I spoke to Burton and, honestly, it is fifty-fifty whether or not they are going to take me back, but Burton have a lot of stuff going on behind closed doors that they didn’t really tell me about.
“And if it means that I come back here to play football and get the chance to get promoted, then I will absolutely take it.
“I just have to see what happens in January and if a team wants me badly, it is really whoever shows interest.
“I don’t think Burton thought when they sent me here that they would ever get any money for me, but now they must be thinking ‘we can get a few pennies for him’, but I don’t really know what they are thinking to be honest.
“When they sent me here it was under [Jimmy Floyd] Hasselbaink and it is now a different man involved, but honestly I don’t see myself playing for Burton again.
“But I have a contract there and if they bring me back and tell me I have to play then I have to be a professional.”
Blake-Tracy said that he respected the way Crewe looked to manage the game against Swindon, but that he had to try and mediate between the away team and the home crowd.
He said: “You know what I said to him [Daniel Agyei]? I saw the fans and I know the fans’ frustration.
“I can see that the fans are starting to lose it a little bit because they can’t do anything about it from the side lines.
“But I was saying to him ‘just be careful, because it is dangerous what you are doing winding people up like this’.
“But also fair play to them, they came here and they got the result, at the end of the day it is all about results, and they won the game.
“If they are going to do that and get the win then I am sure a lot of teams are going to take that and it is just about playing the game.”
