NIGEL Clough says that all the remaining eight games are winnable for his team but he knows that the four against fellow Championship strugglers might hold the key to survival
The Brewers face Birmingham, Hull, Sunderland and Bolton in April – all clubs still fearing the drop.
Clough said: “All the eight games are winnable. How many we need to win will dependent on what others do but picking up points from those around you in the table will be important.
“We are still in with a chance of staying up. It’s a small chance but it is a fighting chance.
“In an awful lot of other seasons, including last season with the points we have got we would be adrift and gone but that’s not the case and we must try and take advantage of that.
“This week we have sent the lads away to have a think about it. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the previous 38 games. It’s a mini eight game season and we need to get some wins now in order to give us a chance.
“The players have been hugely frustrated that we should have got more points than we have. We should have beaten Millwall, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City and only got two points when we should have had nine.
“You go to Wolves and when you don’t get anything it’s not a great surprise but those three home games, we should have got more points from.”
