Peschisolido has guided Burton into the FA Cup fourth round for the first time

Manager Paul Peschisolido says Burton Albion will have to play with more aggression than usual when they face Championship side Burnley on Saturday.

The Brewers are in the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time.

And Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "We'll mix it up and play our football but we perhaps have to show a bit more of the physical side of our game.

"If you are going to match them in a game of football, the chances are they will have a little bit more than us."

Peschisolido added: "They are a good footballing side and we have to impose ourselves and probably play a bit more aggressively.

"I will be urging the players to get out of the blocks and get amongst them and make it difficult.

"The players are itching to go. They're excited, it's a big occasion and that's what football is all about - making a name for yourself on the big occasion - look at Shaun Harrad."

And the Canadian said it is vital his side believe they deserve to be on the same pitch as a side who were competing in the Premier League last season.

"Perhaps we gave Middlesbrough a bit too much respect [in the third round] and it took us too long to get in the game," he said.

"We have to give them respect but not too much respect.

"It's a great opportunity for us."
