Burton boss Paul Peschisolido revealed that his players are treating every game like a cup final after they secured a crucial 2-1 win over Aldershot.

Calvin Zola bagged the winner after Damien Spencer had cancelled out Aaron Webster's opener as the Brewers moved five points clear of the drop zone.

"I think it was a great performance. We have not been very successful away from home but over the last four games the boys have really dug into the next layer and it was good - I was pleased with it," said Peschisolido.

"We are preparing every game like it's a cup final. When you are there at the bottom you need to get as many points as you possibly can. The win was important because our away record has been dismal.

"The win will give us momentum and belief going into the last three games. The pressure is still on - we have still got three massive games but it makes one or two other clubs reassess their situation and panic a little bit."

Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth was left to rue a below-par performance from the hosts, who saw their 10-match unbeaten run ended.

"We have not achieved the same standards as we have in the previous 10 games, and we were punished," he said.

"They are fighting for their lives and scraping for everything, but on the day their front two were the difference.

"My players are playing for something, they are playing for their careers - they are playing for my opinion on their performances.

"I'm bitterly disappointed that we lost the game. I'm not one to point fingers out the dressing room - we win together and lose together. I know that the players are disappointed with their performances and the standard they got to was nowhere near where they were when we played Shrewsbury last week."
