NIGEL Clough says knows the quality that Sheffield Wednesday have throughout their side, as Burton Albion face The Owls tomorrow afternoon.

Wednesday failed to beat Albion at any point last season, but Clough insists they are on a 'different level'.

He said: "They (Sheffield Wednesday) are on a different level. I saw them against Sunderland at home last week when they drew 1-1, they were very unlucky not to win the game.

"They have quality throughout their side, and I think the manager as well has done unbelievably well since he came over here. He always comes across as a nice fella, so it's going to be an extremely hard game for us."

The Brewers will be without the injured Luke Varney and the suspended Hope Akpan ahead of the final game before the international break. John Mousinho and Stephen Warnock will be assessed.

"The usual sort of few people will be out," said Clough. "Hope Akpan is suspended and we will have to see how Stephen Warnock and John Mousinho are. Luke Varney did his hamstring before Cardiff so he won't be involved so we will patch them all up and get them out there before the break."
