Caretaker boss Gary Rowett is pleased with the progress Burton have made following their goalless draw with Crawley on Saturday.
Albion had lost eight successive matches and gone 16 games without a win before beating Gillingham in midweek.
After Burton took another positive step forward at home to Crawley, Rowett said: "That's two clean sheets in a row - one against a very good Gillingham side, who are pushing for the play-offs, and the other against a fantastic Crawley side that's probably going to go up automatically.
"If you look at those two performances, it's two fantastic clean sheets and we'll take that. Down at Crawley earlier in the season, they overpowered us but we were a match for them in certain areas.
"We want to open things up and play with more fluidity but at the moment we've got to play to our strengths. These two results give us something to build on and that point might just be the one that keeps us in the division.
"At times we rode our luck a little but I thought we were terrific and really held strong when we needed to. They claimed they should have had a penalty but I thought we might have had one as well and these things tend to even themselves out."
