Steve Bruce

The target now is to go and build on these last couple of games.

We're six unbeaten in the league and making steady steps forward.

It’s the start of a decent week, hopefully. 

It’s a tough one, but we’ve given ourselves a nice platform.

Let’s hope we can go and have a really good few games and put a marker down before the international break if we can.

We are looking forward to the match, it's one of the fixtures that really stands out when Aston Villa come here, being a former Premier League club for many, many years.

It’s always a big one for us like it was last season. 

These are the sort of games we are in the Championship to enjoy and I think the supporters will as well.

They are such a massive club – ex-European Champions. 

Steve Bruce is trying hard to turn it around and we know he will.

They were under pressure at the start of the season but have had some great results in the last few weeks and they now find themselves just outside the play-offs.

This is just the third time we have faced Burton Albion – the only other fixtures were in the Championship last season.

Villa can extend their unbeaten league run to seven games tonight – we've not lost since mid-August.

Only Leeds United and Sheffield United have taken more points than the claret and blues in the last six games. But, unlike the others, Villa haven't lost in that time.
