JON McLaughlin believes the Brewers just need a slice of luck to go their way to get a first victory on the road.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at Leeds, the Albion keeper said: "It was another game where we have been to a big club and put in a good display. Every time we seem to go on our travels we put in a good account of ourselves but don't come away with the results. That was the same again at Leeds. We restricted them to very few chances but it was the key moments in the game that cost us at the end of the day.

"We still haven't got the win away from home but the performances for us have been very positive. It's just about getting that little bit of luck to get the result we so desperately want.

"We have had some tough places to go recently. It's never going to be easy and you have to be a little bit sensible and can't just go flying at teams but you also have to be tight at the back. It's always important not to lose games as well as trying to win them. It makes it a little bit more difficult for the lads up front but we are definitely trying our best to get that away win sooner rather than later.

"The performances  have been good. We can't make the step up to this division and expect to boss teams at their place. When you come to big clubs like Leeds you have to have respect for them but like the Gaffer says it's still important not to lose games away from home and then, if you win, it's a massive bonus. Our performances so far suggest that if we continue to play that well away from home we will get results."
