NIGEL Clough says that his team go into the final crunch game of the season at Preston in "great spirits" after three wins in a row.

The Brewers travel to Deepdale on Sunday (kick off 12.30pm) with five teams in the relegation mix but with Albion knowing they must get something from the game to have any chance of survival.

Clough said: "It's going to be a game where we have to keep an eye on other results. If Bolton are going to win then we need more than a draw. Whatever Barnsley get we need better than that.

"With one game to go it is very clear that we all have hard games. I wish we were at home not away but I think we go to Preston in great spirits.

"We dealt with the situation very, very well against Bolton and we will have to do the same again next week.

"We told the players before Bolton that whatever they did they mustn't think about the next game only what they had to do that day. Now all our thoughts concentrate on Sunday.

"It will be the usual prepraration - nothing different and then we will give ourselves the best chance to get a result.

"We would have liked to have been out of the bottom three going into the last game but we only have to be out of it on the last day."
