Brown: We'll go into it with the same approach

25 April 2014

Blues' boss believes his side are in their best form of the season

Phil Brown says his side will have the same approach as before when they visit Fleetwood Town on Saturday looking to make it six wins from seven games.

Blues ended a 13-game winless run with three victories in a row, before a surprise defeat to AFC Wimbledon was followed by wins against Rochdale and Accrington Stanley.

Brown believes Blues are currently enjoying their best form of the season, as they look to secure promotion via the play-offs.

He said: “Excluding the game against AFC Wimbledon, we’ve been excellent in recent weeks, and it is probably our best form of the season.

“We need to carry that into the next two games and the play-offs. We still need one more point to make sure it is absolutely certain.

“But we’ll be going there for three. It’s a big game, a good challenge, and a chance to give a good account of ourselves, just as we did in the home game against Fleetwood.

“Our approach will be exactly the same because we want to maintain this form. We’ve come through the bad spell with good organisation, work rate and preparation and that will be the case again on Saturday.”

With Blues closing in on a play-off place, Brown says the experience of a number of players will be key going into them, and that momentum can play an important part – especially with Fleetwood or Burton Albion potentially opposition in the play-offs.

He added: “I’ve been in the play-offs as a manger, coach and a player and that experience is invaluable.

“I’m excited at the prospect of them and the players are excited to be fighting at the right end of the division come the end of the season.

“But we’re not looking any further forward than the next game and that’s a tricky one at Fleetwood Town, who we could potentially meet in the play-offs.

“We have a chance to put a marker down ahead of the play-offs in these last two games, so we’ll be giving it everything to do just that.”
