NIGEL Clough says that his team will always aim to attack the opposition this season as they look to stamp their mark on League One

The Brewers manager said: "We are going to have a go at everyone this season - home or away. We didn't do that enough in the first half against Portsmouth but we did after the break and had much better situations in the second half."

Albion drew 2-2 at league leaders Portsmouth last night and face second place Peterborough United on Saturday at the Pirelli Stadium where they could again be without a string of key players.

Ben Turner, David Templeton, Scott Fraser, Marvin Sordell and Damien McCrory are all currently on the injured list but Albion have still picked up four points on the road out of six without them.

"That's absolutely vital, " said Clough. "We now go into Saturday in good spirits and despite the fatigue and everything we are looking forward to Saturday already.

Clough believes that Portsmouth are the strongest team the Brewers have met this season.

"Every set play is a threat and they are a big, physically strong team."

Clough also believes the upturn in away form is overdue for Albion.

"Getting points on the road was all that was missing from the start of the season and you look at it and think we should have had a win at Bradford and Wycombe and we would be close to that top six which is where we should be."
