NIGEL Clough says his team deserved more than one point from the last two games.
The Brewers came from behind to earn a draw at Brentford but could have gone on to win it and then held Sunderland on Saturday until going down to two late goals.
The Brewers boss said: “One point out of six is a disappointing return, especially as we deserved something against Sunderland. We have to keep going, but it’s always going to be a challenge trying to match up with teams who have better quality than us. Sunderland have a Premier League squad and we are Burton Albion.
"We will keep battling and keep going on against all the odds, trying to keep Burton Albion in the fifth biggest league in Europe.
“What we need to do when we are on top is to get that goal and it would have been interesting, Sunderland’s reaction, if we had of gone ahead. We thought our best chance against Sunderland would be in the first half to surprise them and get on the front foot and I thought we did that.
“But it was a much-improved home performance. This was a much closer game than against Aston Villa, Wolves and Sheffield United so we were strangely encouraged.”
