NIGEL Clough is targeting three points at Tranmere to finish off another good week for the Brewers.

Draws against Coventry and Portsmouth would look even better with a victory at Prenton Park tomorrow (kick off 3pm).

The Brewers manager said: “If we can get five points from the week having played Coventry, Portsmouth and Tranmere I think it will be a good return – and that’s the aim."

Tranmere came from two goals down to earn a draw against Peterborough on Tuesday and will be buoyed by that result.

Clough said: “They are a good honest team and they can mix it up with different styles of play. You look on paper and think it’s a winnable one, but it will also be an extremely tough one, especially on the back of the two hard games we have had this week and the injuries.

“We will have to be close to our best to get a result, but we want to play as we have done this last few weeks. The key will be keeping that level of performance and the physical effort that has gone in.

“I think having had two promotions then their aim will be survival this year but historically it’s another big club who have competed at a higher level and have been well known for their cup exploits.

“They are now battling and scrapping for every point in this league.”
