LUKE Murphy says that Burton Albion are not writing-off their chances of staying up this season after their 3-1 win over Derby County.
The win, in which Murphy scored Burton’s second goal with a brilliant strike from inside the box after setting-up Liam Boyce to open the scoring for the Brewers, was the first at the Pirelli Stadium since September for Albion.
Burton have moved above next weekend’s opponents Sunderland with the win over Derby, five points from safety, and Murphy believes that the side are by-no-means done in the relegation fight.
He said: “We still think that we are in (the fight) until it is impossible. We have looked at the results today, and if we can go to Sunderland next weekend and get a good result then you never know, stranger things have happened.
“We are all staying positive, we are going to fight to the end for this club and for the fans.
“We think that everybody bar ourselves have written us off already, but we have proven today that we can mix it against the big boys.
“One result can turn it around and we need to go to Sunderland now believing that we can turn it around and get three points on the road.”
