BEN Turner says that Burton Albion are disappointed by their defeat to Derby County, but the Brewers must stay focused on their targets in order to survive in the Championship.

Turner played the full-90 minutes as a late Johnny Russell goal settled the game at Pride Park. The Burton Albion centre-half saw a header cleared off of the line in the second-half as the Brewers pushed to take the lead in the game.

The result sees Burton slip to bottom of the Championship, and Turner says that they must keep believing they can turn their form around if they are to stay in the Championship

He said: “Obviously, we still believe in what we are doing and we are trying to get a result. I think it is disappointing today, but the most disappointing part of the season so far is the home form. If we don’t get that as our platform then we will be in trouble.

“We have come away today, we have kept it tight and created some chances and we have conceded a sloppy goal, which is consistent with our season, but we have to go again and we have to keep believing.

“We need nine or 10 wins and then we will be bang in the mix to try to stay up, the games will go by but that target will remain the same, we need 12-13 wins [in the season] and we will have a chance. We need to get up near nine wins and we will have a chance towards the end of the season, we will certainly be involved.”
