Burton Albion defender Ryan Austin says the Brewers can mount a realistic promotion challenge this season.

Burton narrowly avoided dropping out of the League last term, but lie eighth in League Two having won five and drawn five of their opening 12 games.

"You don't want to say too much, too early," Austin told BBC Radio Derby.

"But if we keep keeping clean sheets, I'm confident our front men will carry on scoring goals so there is no reason why we cannot be right up there."

He added: "We have had some great results at some tough places - not many people will beat Rotherham and we went to Southend and won."
