NIGEL Clough's Burton Albion were beaten 4-3 by Nottingham Forest, but the Albion manager wasn't too disheartened by the defeat.

A bit for fortune was included in the build-up for three of Forest's goals this afternoon, which is one of the reasons Clough is taking the positives from the display.

He said: "I'm not too upset about the goals, certainly not three of them because they were deflections or they have had shots outside the box and they have fell to a red shirt, so there's not much we can do about them.

"We could have been better in the build-up (to the goals) and you usually get one of them in a game (deflection) but to get three then probably the fourth one summed our day up, sliding in and looping over the goalkeeper.

"We had our chances, in which we had enough to win two games today.

"It was a bit unfortunate in which the goals got to him (Assombalonga) there's no element of bad defending or anything like that.

"They've literally had shots from outside the box or a cross and they've ended up in his path."
