ANDY Garner say that a scrappy win could change everything for the Brewers as they go into tomorrow’s home game against Barnsley (7.45pm kick off).

The Brewers haven’t won a Championship fixture since September 16 but could and should have beaten Ipswich on Saturday only to go down 2-1.

The Brewers first team coach says Albion deserved the three points on Saturday and that any kind of win could turn the team’s fortunes around.

He said: “A good result changes everything and we were open to that on Saturday. We went out with full intentions to win the game but we haven’t, even though performance wise we couldn’t have asked much more apart from putting the ball in the net.

“We work on scoring day in day out – crossing shooting – unfortunately the strikers aren’t scoring goals at the moment and that has to change. We keep moving players around, to try and get those goals.

“I was a striker myself and when you are in bad run and not scoring you have to keep getting in there. Whether you are missing them or not as long as you are getting in the right positions you have a chance. It’s when you are afraid to get in there and the cross comes over and you are nowhere to be seen, that’s the problem. We keep encouraging them to get in there as sometimes all you need is a little tap in. It’s as good a goal as a 30-yard shot.”

Garner says the Brewers have to target three points against Barnsley.

“They are fighting just as much as us and aren’t in brilliant form as well. It could be a cagey game but all we can do is go out and try and be as positive as we were on Saturday, get on the front foot and try and create chances.

“We realise that we haven’t accumulated enough points in this poor run. That has to change.”
