BURTON Albion will head to Birmingham tomorrow looking for revenge for their FA Cup third round defeat in January, according to defender Tom Naylor.

The Brewers are eight points behind Garry Monk’s men in the league, as the Blues three-consecutive wins have pulled them clear of the bottom three.

Nigel Clough’s side were beaten at St Andrew’s in January as then manager Steve Cotterill’s team advanced in the FA Cup, despite Burton have much more chances on the day.

Naylor says that the squad was shocked not to win the game at the start of the year but is determined to get a different outcome this weekend.

He said: “ When we played Birmingham away in the cup, we could not believe that we lost. That is just the way that football is, we had enough chances to win the game, they had one chance and they scored.

“We are going to make it different on Saturday. We are going to go out all guns blazing and go for the win.

“Anyone can beat anyone in this league, we could beat anyone on our day and it is no different on Saturday, we will go to try to upset them and get the three points, dent their survival and see where we go from there.

“We create a lot of chances but we just can’t find the back of the net. Hopefully, our luck will change in the next three to four weeks and we will get the breaks, get the goals and keep as many clean sheets as we can.”
