BREWERS manager Nigel Clough is pleased with the start his team has made to a tricky run of fixtures.
Albion beat Gillingham and drew with Doncaster before embarking on three games in a week starting on Boxing Day.
Clough said: “It is a tough run of fixtures – Gillingham and Doncaster are in good form so four points from those two games is a great return. Now it’s Bradford on Boxing Day. They are one of the big boys in terms of their support and stadium. They are also a good team who can come with a late charge, not just for the play-offs but can challenge for the automatic places.
“We are just getting our breath back after Saturday as it was a brilliant game with two teams playing the right way. We edged it in terms of chances and should have come out with three points. We also showed the character and spirit to come back from 1-0 and 3-2 down.
“We have had a chat about the four-game spell over Christmas and then we have a two-week break after Blackpool on January 2. We have said that staying unbeaten is important but we need some wins in that as well.”
