GARY Rowett is looking for his Burton Albion side to build on their draw with Scunthorpe United when they travel to Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow.
The Brewers stopped a run of three consecutive League Two defeats with a 2-2 draw against the Iron at the Pirelli Stadium last week.
Now, Rowett is looking for another positive result at Adams Park tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.
“We need to build on last week’s home game,” said the manager. “We’ve won nearly as many away as last season already and should have no fear going into away matches.
“We need to recognise it’s important to build on Scunthorpe and get the ball rolling again.”
Rowett is setting out to go and grab all three points tomorrow – but says a draw, like in any away match, would be a good result.
“Every single away game you play, you would never argue that a draw isn’t a good result,” he said. “But we can’t go there playing to draw.
“Never in my time have we gone into a game playing for a draw or setting our stall out just to get a draw.
“Even if you do that, say in a cup game against higher league opposition, you’ve always got to have a plan to try to nick the game at some point.”
Rowett has almost a full squad to pick from tomorrow, with the only slight doubts surrounding Rory Delap (hamstring) and Dean Lyness (foot).
Adam McGurk has recovered from a bout of tonsillitis which restricted him to the bench against Scunthorpe.
Billy Kee also showed no ill effects from his first start in seven weeks against the Iron.
Lyness will face a late fitness test and should he fail, veteran Kevin Poole, 50, could be registered to return to the bench.
“Dean’s been struggling a bit after the reserve game,” said Rowett. “We’ll assess him, but it’s not a massive issue for us.
“If he was ruled out, I doubt we’d be able to find anyone better than Pooley in a pressure situation where he had to come on for 10 minutes.
“I’m not sure he’s too keen, though, so we’ll persuade him.
“I’ll have to make him a cup of coffee, give him some biscuits and let him beat me at head tennis!”
As for McGurk, he played in Tuesday’s reserve game against Kidderminster and looked sharp.
“Adam wasn’t quite well enough to start against Scunthorpe last week,” said Rowett. “It wouldn’t have been fair to ask him to play after he only did one session all week because of illness.
“He scored one against Kidderminster and made two others.
“It was an excellent workout and Adam will certainly come into contention against Wycombe.”
