Kyle McFadzean is hoping Burton Albion can kick-start their Championship campaign with back-to-back home wins, beginning with tomorrow night's clash with Birmingham City.
McFadzean - an ever-present in the league so far for the Brewers - reckons it is going to be a tough ask against a revitalised Birmingham team under former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp.
The Blues side that comes to the Pirelli on Friday evening will be a different beast to the challenge that they presented when the two sides last met in April.
Albion came away from St Andrews 2-0 winners, prompting then-manager Gianfranco Zola's resignation, and completed one of their two doubles over fellow Championship sides - the other being Rotherham United - following October's triumph by the same scoreline under the Pirelli Stadium floodlights.
The Brewers have not got off to the start they would have wanted, losing their opening three league games - albeit against an unbeaten Cardiff City side and a relegated duo in Hull City and Middlesbrough.
But McFadzean is not concerned and, like his boss Nigel Clough, reflects the mood of the dressing room that it is about par for the course given the tough start they were handed.
Thoughts now move on to getting off the mark - and the ex-MK Dons man is targeting maximum points from Friday night and the subsequent visit of Sheffield Wednesday before the break.
"You want to get off to a good start as early as you can," the Brewers' one-time record signing said.
"If we were 10 or15 games in then we'd be worrying a bit more.
"We want to get points on the board, but we were unlucky against Cardiff, I thought a draw was probably fair.
"They were better in the second half, but I thought a draw would have been a fair result. Obviously they scored in the last minute, and we haven't got a point yet.
"We're hoping to get three points tomorrow, but it's going to be tough because Redknapp is a good and experienced manager.
"He always has his teams working hard and has brought some new players in.
"It'll be a tough game but we're looking forward to it.
"Redknapp's a different manager to Zola, and he'll have his players fully at it.
"I don't think he was happy with their last performance (a 0-0 draw with Bolton Wanderers) so I'm sure he'll be on to the players and try to get them going for the next match.
"It's massive, we want the maximum six points if we can, and that's what we'll be trying to get.
"Our home form is massive this year and it was good first part of last year, and we'll be trying as much as possible trying to get six points."
