JOHN Brayford says that the points are all that matter for Burton Albion against Middlesbrough, even if it means sacrificing a good performance to get them.
The Brewers come into the game on Easter Monday six points adrift of safety, with Sunderland, Birmingham and Barnsley all picking up points over the weekend.
Brayford, who returned to action from injury against Cardiff, says that he would happily take a win at the Pirelli Stadium over a good performance tomorrow.
He said: “We know that our home form has been really poor. We have got to turn around and look at ourselves to try to put a performance on.
“You know what? I would take a worse performance and get the three points any day, because the points are what matter now.”
The Brewers have not won at home since September and Brayford says that the teams must be better at both ends of the pitch if they are to survive in the Championship for another season.
“It is another game, another three points up for grabs. You can say all of the clichés in the world, but we know what we have got to do now.
“Middlesbrough is a different game and we are playing to get the chances, we would be a bit more worried if we were not getting the chances. We are getting chances and we just need to try to convert them.
“We need to be more ruthless in both boxes, that is why teams are at the top and teams are at the bottom in this league. There isn’t a great deal between teams all over the pitch, really.
