BURTON Albion’s first team players have their “hearts set” on automatic promotion.
Brewers boss Nigel Clough said: “The nice thing is that we sense from the players that although the top six would be a great achievement the top two is what we are aiming for.
"They have their hearts set on that now - it’s just a case of us reminding them that if that’s the case then every game in the last 16 we have to be on our game and not give anything away."
Clough also hopes winning League One last season will gave his squad an extra advantage.
He said: “Last season’s experience chasing in League 2 will help. When you are challenging for promotion in any league that experience will help you. We just want to keep things ticking along.
“The next two matches against Southend and Walsall, if we can get something from those two games, we will be in a strong position. What we don’t want is any signs of complacency creeping in.”
At the moment Clough is happy that’s his team’s achievements are going under the radar a bit in terms of media coverage.
“We are going to try and keep things as low key as possible. If we do manage to get promotion then we might be shouting about it from the rooftops all over The Midlands but not before then.”
