Striker Billy Kee believes Burton's defence has been integral to their recent upturn in form.
Kee was on target on Sunday to secure a 1-0 win against Accrington, a second successive victory and clean sheet for Gary Rowett's men, which sent them to within a point of the League Two play-off places.
Kee refused to take the credit for the three points, instead heaping praise on his team's defensive display.
He told the Burton Mail: "It was nice to score early on and and start, of course, but I think you could see how good of a team performance it was with our defending.
"We're keeping clean sheets and that's a massive thing. The back four were superb and they're always superb.
"I'd say we've got the best four or five centre-halves in the league with Stanno (Nathan Stanton) and G (Aaron Webster) on the bench who can play anywhere."
