Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough reckons tomorrow's game at QPR is more meaningful than their midweek trip to Manchester United.
The Brewers went out of the Carabao Cup 4-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, but Clough places more importance on this weekend's Loftus Road clash.
Having taken three points off West London neighbours Fulham last weekend, Burton will be fired up for another chance to pull away from the Championship danger zone.
“That's the important one of the week for us,” said Clough. “This (playing at United) is a special occasion, but the next three games before the international break could go a certain amount of the way to defining how we do this season.
“Two home games and a tough one at QPR on Saturday. We want the same sort of attitude that we've had tonight and seen in the last couple of games.
“You can come here and you can be on the end of an absolute thrashing and a battering and you come away demoralised, as good an occasion as it is.
“The lads aren't feeling like that, which is good. They went out there, had a go, scored a goal and now we move on to QPR.”
Meanwhile, following the recent terrorist incident in London, supporters have been to arrive at Loftus Road and enter the stadium as early as possible tomorrow.
Queues are anticipated due to additional searches, while fans are also reminded, where possible, to avoid bringing bags to Loftus Road on a matchday.
