ANDY Garner says he expects the Brewers to be flying at QPR tomorrow.

The Burton Albion first team coach says: "We rested quite a few on Wednesday night at Manchester United so we are really looking forward to going there tomorrow and we are expecting a very good performance.

"After resting players we expect them to be absolutely flying  and we are going there looking for a result, that's for sure. We will be looking to win the game. "

Garner is hoping that the Brewers can take the momentum from the victory over Fulham last Saturday into the QPR fixture.

He says: "Fulham are a very good side and for us to be beating teams like that is fantastic. So we want to build on that and get something at QPR. It was a fantastic result last season to win there and we would love to repeat that."

The Brewers have close to a full squad to choose from with only Will Miller and long-term injury Liam Boyce likely to be unavailable. There are also likely to be a few players who have boosted their chances of being in the starting line-up after good performances at Old Trafford on Wednesday from the likes of Tom Flanagan, Tom Naylor and Hope Akpan.

Garner says: "They didn't let anybody down at Old Trafford, so we know they are more than capable if needed.

"Hope will be in the squad. He's still a little bit behind on fitness but we saw on Wednesday what a good player he is on the ball and he did himself no harm at all."
