Peschisolido's side struggled to secure their League Two safety last season

Burton Albion boss Paul Peschisolido says his side have plenty of room for improvement but has also played down their promotion ambitions.

Four wins in five League Two games, including last week's dramatic late success at Hereford United, have taken the Brewers into the play-off spots.

Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "I still feel there is more to come; we can play a heck of a lot better.

"But it's not Christmas yet so it's way too early to look at the play-offs."

The Brewers trailed 2-1 going into injury time at Edgar Street.

But they scored twice to secure maximum points and are now in fifth spot, just three points off an automatic promotion place.

Peschisolido said the comeback typified their character and resilience and was all the more impressive given their FA Cup exit at the hands of Oldham Athletic the previous week.

"It's a massive response and a massive boost," Peschisolido added.

"What's there is the belief. The boys feel we will get something from every game.

"When the belief is there, and the spirit is certainly there, then you always have a chance.

"The key this season was to make sure we improved on last season and we've done that. We proved we can do that with not that many new additions and the same core of players from last season.

"We are in a nice run of form and I am delighted.

"We are surrounded by massive clubs for League Two that are far bigger than League Two so to be in there competing and getting the better of them on some occasions is really good."
