BEN Turner says that Burton Albion’s recent run of wins has given the team belief and is a testament to the character of the team.

The Brewers were seven points adrift of safety after 5-0 defeat to Hull City just three weeks ago. However, nine points from their last three games has seen Burton head into the final day of the season only in the relegation zone on goal difference, knowing that a win against Preston North End could see them survive.

Turner admits that he can understand why the team had been written off earlier in the season, but he says the togetherness of the team has contributed to giving them a chance of survival.

He said: “This season, we have had to accept that, for a long time, we have been in (the relegation zone). It is a credit to the lads that we have all stuck together and believe that we can get out of it.

“A couple of weeks ago, we were over 100/1 to stay up, we are a completely different price to stay up now. That shows you how far we have come.

“Being honest, from the outside we were absolutely dead and buried. Now, we have got some hope and, while it isn’t totally in our hands, if we win a game of football then we have got a good chance.”
