MANAGER'S VERDICT - BRISTOL

13 August 2016

NIGEL Clough said it was a "tough" result to take after going down 2-1 to Bristol City.

The Brewers boss said: "It was tougher than Forest last week. We controlled the majority of the game but conceded two scrappy goals. The second one on 94 minutes on the clock was especially difficult to take.

"When we look back on it our performance was very good - it is just the result.

"I thought we played better than we did at Forest, Bristol had very few opportunities today. We had a lot of chances in and around their penalty area and I thought our general play was much better than last week.

"When you come back and score in the 88th minute, your priority then is don't lose the game. 

"The way football works, we will probably be poorer on Tuesday night and get all three points. We will  play worse than we have  in these opening two games and will get points on the board."
