IN today’s opponents Ipswich, Burton Albion face a team they are yet to beat but that doesn’t concern Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

The Tractor Boys have won six and drawn one of their seven previous encounters with the Brewers and recorded a 2-1 success at Portman Road in December.

But a lack of luck against Ipswich doesn’t worry the Albion manager.

He said: “I didn’t know about that. I don’t look at the previous results only what they are like now, what kind of team they are now and how we can hurt them.

“Hopefully, tomorrow is the first one we win against them.”

Hasselbaink expects a tough match though against one of the promotion favourites.

He said: “They are a very good team. Sometimes they play quite direct and at other times they try and play around you. Obviously, they have good players.

“At the beginning of the season anyone who was asked who is going to get promotion would say that Ipswich would be there or thereabouts.

“They are a team that are always going to go on the attack but it’s about how we can attack them and go about their fragile points and work them and put them on the back foot. We need to be positive in our work and not be intimated by them. We need to take the game to Ipswich.”

After today, the Brewers will have an extended break as Doncaster will be in FA Cup action next Saturday, which takes precedence over their scheduled league game against Albion.

Albion will therefore have to wait until Tuesday, January 26, for more Sky Bet League One Action when Shrewsbury are the visitors.
