But the Brewers will be confident heading into Saturday’s clash with Brentford, who have lost two on the bounce and struggle for consistency.
There’s no doubting the Bees have one of the most talented squads in the Championship, with some opposition managers labelling them as the best footballing side in the division.
But grinding out results seems to be their problem, with showed on Tuesday, when they threw away a one-goal lead to lose to struggling Wolves at Griffin Park.
Lasse Vibe, Josh McEachran and Ryan Woods are players that have caught the eye and Nigel Clough will be wary of the threat they pose.
Brentford also have good away form in recent weeks, going unbeaten in three and winning two of those.
The Brewers will be confident though, especially on their own patch, and will look to follow up last weekend’s victory over rivals Nottingham Forest at the Pirelli.
Cauley Woodrow netted the only goal and took his tally to three since joining the club.
With nine games, Burton have hit form at the perfect time and could take a giant leap to securing survival with victory at the weekend.
