Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough wants his side to relax ahead of their Carabao Cup clash with Manchester United on Wednesday night - but he's still expecting the same work ethic the Brewers have shown so far this season.
Clough spoke ahead of his side's trip to Old Trafford, harking back to the days of the Brewers' January 2006 FA Cup visit to the Theatre of Dreams after holding a star-studded Red Devils side to a 0-0 draw at the Pirelli Stadium to force a replay.
The manager of one of the biggest underdog stories in football wants his players to look at Wednesday night's match as another opportunity to ‘work as we do in every Championship game’, even if he is realistic about their chances against the in-form hosts.
One only has to point to various scalps that Burton took last term - the likes of Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town came undone against Clough's Championship survival master plan last term.
And the former Derby boss wants the whole club to enjoy a night off from their second-tier survival mission and enjoy themselves on the hallowed turf of Old Trafford, just like the class of 2006 did.
"Just positively, like we did then", Clough said when asked about how his side will approach an unbeaten United side.
"We didn't do anything different, and we won't do now.
"We're going up Wednesday morning, we won't do anything different and we didn't when we played them here.
"It's just normal training, lads just reported before the game.
"The lads don't want to go in hotels like the part-time lads in those days - it's just the same routine, and it'll be the same for the lads going up - just to relax.
"And we'll be stressing to them, just enjoy it. Have a go, work as we do in every Championship game, but just go and enjoy the evening.
"The whole club is going to go and enjoy it as well. We were so fortunate to go there 11 years ago, we are going again."
Unsurprisingly, preparation is rather more difficult for a this sort of fixture compared to last weekend's clash with Fulham, who the Brewers beat 2-1, sending them to Old Trafford full of confidence.
As Clough points out, it's difficult to know what side United will put out, never mind what tactics boss Jose Mourinho will employ - adding all the more intrigue to the tie.
"You can't!" Clough added about how to prepare for the United clash.
"You don't know what side they are going to put out for a start.
"We always do some stuff on the opposition and everything.
"But for these sorts of games, we don't tend to, because we don't really know what team they are going to put out.
"We could put out two hours’ worth of stuff on all the players they could put out and do.
"We'll be concentrating on ourselves as well and saying, 'come on, this is what we are going to do', and not worrying too much about them.
"Because it just frightens. It frightens us, it frightens the players.
"Everton are a very good team, and they literally couldn't get out of their half the first 10 mins of the game - hopefully we will!
"We might try to kick it a bit further than them - we'll get a couple of balls in their corner flag if we can."
