NIGEL Clough say that Brewers will be practising penalties ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup replay against Salford in case the tie is locked in stalemate after extra-time.
The Brewers drew 1-1 with the League Two side at the Peninsula Stadium and will now look to complete the job on home soil (kick off 7.45pm).
Clough said: “We practice penalties regularly, and we will certainly do that again before Tuesday.”
The Brewers manager is hoping the tie doesn’t go the distance and says his team’s ability to take chances could well be the crucial factor.
He said: “I think the replay will be pretty similar to the first game and I hope we can control the game like we did in the second half at Salford.
"Their threat on the break and from set plays was there for all to see. It will be about whether or not we can convert chances, we have no problem creating them, but we don’t always convert them. Although that will be harder for us as we will be without Liam Boyce and Nathan Broadhead."
Oldham await the winners in the Second Round.
Clough said: “I think the service stations on the M6 are making a lot of money out of us and our fans at the moment as we seem to be making a lot of trips in that direction.
“It brings back many memories of our FA Cup tie then when we were in the Conference and we got a 2-2 draw there despite being down to 10 men.
"But we aren’t thinking about that, only Salford and we will do everything we can to get through and we have two incredibly important league games after that.”
