SINCE the arrival of Nigel Clough, we have also seen the familiar faces of Andy Garner, Gary Crosby but more importantly to Jon McLaughlin, goalkeeping coach Martin Taylor.

McLaughlin said: “We haven’t had that much time working together so far, only a few weeks.

“Martin has come in mostly to try and continue what we’re doing in the same vein as the gaffer and the rest of the staff.

“They don’t want to come in and suddenly try to re-invent the wheel or disrupt the good we have been doing.

“Under Hasselbaink and Gavin Ward I thought I was performing well and going in a good direction. 

“They came in and made it clear they want to help me carry on in the same direction, which was nice for me to hear.

“I am always happy for goalkeepers and goalkeeping coaches to come in and add what they’ve got; I don’t want to be telling them what I need to do or things like that.

“We have worked together really well, they have settled straight in and started working as a collective to make sure we go in the right direction.”

Ex-Premier League goalkeeper Stephen Bywater has also joined Burton Albion as he links up with former manager Nigel Clough again, this time at the Pirelli Stadium.

Jon McLaughlin said: “With Steve (Bywater) the level he has played at and the experience he has got it’s great to have a guy like him around.

“He is a great personality and it’s been great to have someone come in who will push me all the way to the end of the season.”
