Rowett backs Brewers promotion

Burton boss Gary Rowett has urged the club's fans to play their part in Albion's promotion tilt.

A five-game unbeaten run, which includes three wins, has seen the Brewers climb up to fourth in the League Two table.

They host seventh-placed Exeter, who are just a point behind Rowett's side, on Saturday and the Burton boss has urged supporters to be a 12th man.

"It's only beneficial if the fans can get behind us," Rowett said. "They can make a huge difference to the players with their support and I think that's key.

"They can make a massive difference to us in our remaining games.

"Those that travelled to Fleetwood last weekend were brilliant. If we can create that party atmosphere at the Pirelli Stadium it'd be great."
